CWK’s association-based training programs become the most authentic educational programs in Korea. The alumni of CWK’s association-based training programs become the trainers at many universities and institutions. Moreover, the alumni of CWK’s association-based training programs are leading the wood projects and wood construction industry in Korea. For instance, 4 out of 5 awarded projects at the 2010 Korea Wood Design Awards(KWDA) and the Grand Prize project for the 2011 KWDA were designed/built by the alumni of KWCA-WUC’s MSMF WFC Training program.
