Professional Exam PREP

The material provided below will assist members in preparing for the Professional Exam. The exam will test your knowledge of forestry-related legislation and policies. The extensive list of reference material has been divided into two reading lists:

 

  • PRINCIPAL: this list contains all the forestry legislation and policies that ALL Forestry Professionals are expected to be knowledgeable about.  Exam questions are drawn from the materials referenced on this list.

 

  • SUPPLEMENTAL: this list contains additional reference material that provides more details, background and/or supporting information. You will want to be familiar with the reference materials that are related to your scope of practice. These documents will not be directly tested on the exam, but may provide some supporting information that will aid in the comprehension of Forestry-related legislation and policy and how forestry is managed in Alberta.
