We also offer Assessor training relating to the Licensing Scheme managed by the High Conservation Value Resource Network.

ASTRA is offering to trainees a user-friendly e-learning platform, combined with face-to-face courses offered around the world to deliver training to auditors, certification body staff, internal auditors, consultants and industry representatives who wish to improve their knowledge and skills relating to FSC and RSB standards and their practical application.

Additionally, we also provide an ISO 19011 course (online or as a "blended" course). This course responds to the requirements of the various certification schemes, relating to auditing techniques and ISO qualification of their auditors. 

Since 2006, our trainers have been delivering training to more than 700 FSC auditors working or collaborating currently with more than 30 accredited certification bodies.

Main courses:


ASTRAcademy is an approved Training Provider in the FSC certification system. The courses offered have obtained the formal recognition from Accreditation Services International (ASI) as being in compliance with current FSC requirements for auditor training.
The training programme consists of five main courses, listed above.
Our Auditor courses for trainee FSC Auditors (Forest Management and Chain of Custody Auditor courses) do not cover ISO training requirements. Trainee auditors who are not qualified on ISO standards (as outlined in FSC-STD-20-001 V4) can register, in addition to the FM and/or COC courses on our ISO 19011 course, which will help them fulfill FSC auditor training requirements.
Our RSB courses for auditors, consultants and industry experts have been developed together with the RSB, and it are recongnized as the official training program on the RSB Standard. ASTRAcademy is also offering training updates on the RSB Standard and is keeping a register of tained and qualified professionals engaged with the RSB system.
