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 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.

2018 TOP Update Classes
The 2018 TOP Training deadline was June 30, 2018. 
  • Any person who missed the training by the deadline may be reinstated by making up the missed training by September 30, 2018 and paying a reinstatement fee of $280. 
  • If training was completed but payment was not made that person will be reinstated once the annual registration fee of $80 is received.
  • At any time a person can repeat the TOP 2-day initial training class to regain TOP trained status.
