MLOFT Instructors Needed!

Are you a retired or former logging equipment operator? The PLC’s Mechanized Logging Operations and Forest Trucking (MLOFT) Program is looking for experienced operators to teach hands-on equipment operations this summer in Fairfield, ME. This will be one-on-one instruction in the woods, training the next generation of loggers. If you’re looking for a seasonal opportunity this summer, or recently retired, we offer competitive wages and benefits, including travel costs. MLOFT is looking for both buncher and processor operators and skilled crane and delimber operators. For details, please call or text Donald Burr at (207) 356-1541.
