More information at, or contact

The purpose of this course is to provide a basic understanding of wood and how to dry it.  Practical, up-to-date information will be provided on wood properties and how wood dries.  You’ll learn how both steam-heated and dehumidification kilns are made, operated and maintained, and how to create and modify kiln schedules for different species. Drying to meet the heat treating standards will also be discussed. This tutorial course is designed for personnel who operate, load, maintain, or manage lumber kilns. New personnel and experienced personnel will benefit. Mills will see payback through improved lumber quality, higher kiln throughput, and energy savings. A course workbook outlines presentations and a supplemental disk provides additional information. The disk includes the Dry Kiln Operator’s Manual, kiln schedules for hundreds of species, and other publications that mills will find useful.
