The TOP Update is the annual continuing education requirement for TOP trained individuals. Beginning in the training cycle (July 1- June 30 each year) after completing the TOP 2-Day class, participants must take the TOP Update and pay an $80 annual fee by June 30 each year to maintain their TOP trained status.
The TOP Update is a facilitated video-based class that will normally take about 2-3 hours. The Update can be facilitated by any SC Registered Forester and is often offered by mills and wood dealers for their wood suppliers and contractors.
