Fundamentals of Our Education
You will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills for modern forest management, as well as environmental protection. These responsibilities are based upon training in four key areas:
|General Knowledge: The school guarantees an extensive general foundation of knowledge. Modern teaching methods convey key qualifications, such as interdisciplinary and networked thinking, team spirit, communicative and cooperative skills as well as the ability to work independently.||Ecology: Our training seeks to show the students the interconnectedness of all ecosystems, particularly those in forest habitats, as the conservation of our natural resources becomes ever more important. From this training, you will acquire a comprehensive knowledge of flora and fauna, geology, soil science, climatology, as well as game biology and hunting.|
|General Knowledge - Ecology - Technology - Business
|Technology: With the help of modern forest technology, it is possible to manage and maintain our forests in a cost-effective way, such that the many functions of the forests are preserved for the future generations. You will learn the basics and methods of forest development and forest technology. You will become familiar with the planning and installation of logging systems and technical construction systems to prevent avalanches, torrents and mud-rock flows. You will also leadership and personnel management skills.||Business: Forestry close to nature, with the tensions between environmental protection and economic use, demands flexible and dynamic acting by the forester. At our school, you will learn modern management skills, learn about economic interrelations, and come to understand comprehensive legal frameworks, as well as practical uses of electronic data handling.|
Apart from general education, our students receive the vital knowledge necessary for modern forest management and for tasks in natural resource and environmental protection. Required subjects and modern training methods develop and support many subjects, including electronic data handling, communication and presentation skills, working in teams, and independent knowledge acquisition, as well as problem solving strategies.
Two forests, with a total area of about 712 hectares of wooded land, are available for practical training. From manual labor to strategic planning, from hunting to product marketing, the forests provide a number of opportunities for enriching the education of the students.
