Minnesota Forest Stewardship Plan Writer Continuing Education Credits

  • SFEC tracks MN Forest Stewardship Plan Writer continuing education credits for the Minnesota DNR.
  • Plan writers must obtain 20 continuing education credits per fiscal year (July 1 – June 30) to have an approved status.
  • SAF CFE credits translate directly to MN Forest Stewardship Plan Writer credits, but MN Forest Stewardship Plan Writer credits do not translate to SAF CFE credits.
  • If you attended an SAF-accredited event and you would like MN Forest Stewardship Plan Writer credits, submit your Certificate of Attendance to Julie Hendrickson.
  • If you’re wondering whether an event qualifies for MN Forest Stewardship Plan Writer credits, submit a detailed agenda to Julie for evaluation.
