Training for HCV assessors in the palm oil sector

This training course is designed for professionals who wish to carry out HCV assessments of palm oil plantations.

The High Conservation Value (HCV) approach is a tool used for sustainable management of natural resources. HCV assessments are a requirement for RSPO certification.

In January 2015, RSPO introduced the requirement that all HCV assessments for New Plantings Procedures must be led by assessors licensed by the HCV Resource Network's Assessor Licensing Scheme (ALS), which verifies the quality of HCV assessors and assessments.

Proforest is recognised as a training provider under the ALS. Our assessor training courses cover all HCV reporting requirements and assessment best practice, as required by the ALS.

This course includes a combination of presentations and group exercises. At the end of the course participants will be familiar with the steps necessary to identify, manage and monitor HCVs in the context of oil palm production and the requirements of the ALS and RSPO.
