If you are a Victorian FOLS holder who is seeking to renew an endorsement for:

  • Faller (Basic);
  • Faller (Intermediate); or
  • Faller (Advanced)

then you must send us evidence of a practical re-assessment within the last six years in order to have the skill listed on your FOLS.

This is a requirement of the major Victorian forest managers, effective October 2014. They agreed that this would commence for the second renewal occurring after the change from the Victorian Government licensing system to the ForestWorks FOLS system.

VicForests advised their of this change in 2014.

If you need a FOLS urgently and you do not have a reassessment, then ForestWorks can renew your FOLS and mark the faller endorsement as “Not Current”. You will then need to check with your forest manager about what to do next.
