Professional Development

The strength of our team grows as we deepen the capabilities of the individuals that comprise it. To that end, we are committed to understanding and growing the skills of all our people. We actively invest in continuing education for staff members at all levels.

All Wood Harbinger employees are given the latitude and empowerment to express ideas and explore them creatively. Every individual is entrusted to self-manage within a set of firm-wide processes and is provided with support and leadership. By leveraging our combined strengths and passions, we can create highest value project outcomes that exceed our clients’ expectations.

We offer paid study time and paid exam fee for employees seeking their E.I.T. or P.E.

We support our existing Professional Engineers through continuing education opportunities, paying for Washington State license renewal, and supporting licensure for any other state required for Wood Harbinger work.

Industry Involvement

Our staff attend local, regional, and national conferences within their areas of specialization. We promote ongoing learning and certifications in the areas of sustainability, engineering, technology, and commissioning. We pay for memberships and associated costs.
