i-Tree Academy On-Line Live Session Training Course
The US Forest Service and several key partners are offering an on-line training program called the i-Tree Academy, designed to introduce i-Tree tools to a class of 35 participants. The Academy instruction will be delivered by experienced members of the i-Tree project team, focused on helping users utilize the i-Tree software suite of tools which can be used to inventory, assess and report on the value of urban forests and greenspace. The course begins on January 22, 2020, and registration for the program must be completed by January 3, 2020.
The course will be approximately 4 months in length and includes bi-monthly online web sessions, self-paced learning modules, assignments, and completion of a student project. Students will be able to focus on a specific urban forestry issue of interest to them. The required two-hour web sessions will occur twice each month, 12:00 to 2:00 Eastern time. Participants will complete assignments related to the topics covered in each web session and will develop and complete a final project. The goal of the course is to develop a cadre of individuals who can use i-Tree tools to complete community projects or conduct i-Tree training for others.
