Certified Foresters
The mission of the Certified Forester program is to serve as the competency and credentialing standard for foresters; recognize a forester's education, professional experience, and commitment to the ongoing pursuit of knowledge; promote continuing education in forestry and associated disciplines; and increase public awareness of the forestry professional.

The Society of American Foresters (SAF) established the national Certified Forester credential in 1994 to address the inconsistent state-by-state approach to forester credentialing through licensing and registration. The Certified Forester/Forest Certification Auditor specialized credential focuses on auditing for forest certification. The Candidate Certified Forester® inspires every forestry graduate and those returning to the profession to earn a credential while gaining the experience needed to earn the CF credential.
