MSR Supervisor / MSR Operator Certification Course – Part 1
Our new MSR (Machine Stress-rated) Certification course has been developed and is now posted for our MSR Members who need to get their MSR Supervisors or MSR Operators certified.
This course will also be of interest for member employees and members of the public who would like to learn more about MSR lumber.
All topics of MSR lumber production is covered including certifying a new MSR machine, what you need to know before you start, Qualifying MSR grades, Visual MSR Grade requirements, ongoing Quality Controlling of MSR production, CUSUM functions, Temperature considerations, Out-of-Control situations, and Grade Stamping requirements.
For those students that take this on-line course and pass the exam at the end, a “Certificate of Pass” will be issued.
For those students who need to be MSR qualified and certified, they will have to complete and pass Part 1 of this on-line course, and then proceed with Part 2 of our MSR Supervisor/MSR Operator Certification program. This involves working with a CMSA Supervisor and demonstrating the proficient use of a Proof Loader, demonstrating that they understand the Visual MSR Grade restrictions, demonstrating that they know how to do CUSUMs calculations, and that they understand how to navigate the Out-Of-Control flow charts.
For those students that pass both Part 1 and Part 2 of our MSR Certification course, they will receive a “Certificate of MSR Certification” which may be required by your employer.
