A dry kiln is only as efficient as the operator who runs it. Is your kiln operator running the kiln facility at its maximum efficiency?

NHLA is introducing a Complete Hardwood Drying Workshop to advance the knowledge and skills of kiln operators, managers, supervisors, and trainees.

Over the first 2½ days, students will learn the fundamentals of kiln drying, including the best practices for measuring quality, proper stacking and air drying, and measuring moisture content (MC).
The next 1½ day will focus on advanced techniques and training, including identifying defects (and the causes and cures), how to safely speed-up drying, energy savings, and much more.

Students are encouraged to bring real-life problems for the instructor for evaluation, discussion, and resolution.

This workshop is instructed by "the Wood Doctor" Gene Wengert.
