This skills inventory for forestry occupations was developed by a technical committee in Montana to assist in the development of model curricula and to address state labor market needs. The committee included employers from the forestry industry, members from trade and professional associations, and educators. The validated task list and defined job clusters are intended to provide information on the type and level of knowledge and skills needed for entry, retention, and advancement in Montana forestry occupations. The guide contains the following: (1) Montana supply and demand occupational information; (2) occupational characteristics of selected jobs in the forestry industry; and (3) task lists and job titles for forest industry occupations in three major categories--natural resources management, forest-related services, and forest product manufacturing. The document includes information on training time for forestry occupations; mathematics and language training time; physical demands; and environmental working conditions. (KC)
