My TRADA Guide

It might have been a long time in the planning and execution, but we hope that anyone who visits TRADA’s new website will agree that it’s been worth the wait.


Much of the work has focused on developing a site that is mobile-optimised: with increasing numbers of people accessing the website on the move, TRADA wanted to develop a more seamless user journey.


But it is the breadth and depth of the content on the new site that really makes it stand out from the crowd. TRADA has already developed a strong reputation for the quality of its timber content: this new website will take that reputation to the next level. Not only that but it features arguably the most comprehensive Timber Suppliers Directory available anywhere online.


All the existing features of the current website remain, although we’ve added a number of enhancements to improve the user experience for both members and non-members, including:

  • A clean, sophisticated design
  • A more intuitive layout
  • Mobile optimisation
  • An improved search facility
  • Enhanced options allowing for a more comprehensive Suppliers Directory listing.


The website has a fresh new look and functionality, while its Academic Resources section has also been given a makeover and will soon be available to all TRADA members.


Academic Resources has been renamed Learning Resources to reflect that they are for everyone who wants to find out more about timber. All eight modules have been refreshed and there are five brand-new units bringing the total number of units to 63.


The site’s bold new design and easy-to-navigate content marks a significant departure from the old site. To get the full list of changes, see our ‘How to and what’s new’ guide, available here (Link/ button).


All functions and access will continue as normal, including the use of your existing username and password. However, it’s possible your search engine may not remember your password: If this is the case, use the ‘Forgotten my password’ procedure to reset it.


The new ‘My TRADA’ section provides each user with their own dashboard showing recently downloaded items, reading lists and also providing control over The Company Supplier Directory listing.


Once logged in as a member, free registered user or academic member, the new ‘My TRADA’ area will contain your account details, including username and password as well as your:

  • Dashboard
  • CPD tracking
  • Recently downloaded documents
  • Suggested reading & items added to your ‘My reading list’ & ‘My species shortlist’
  • Public Profile to edit your Suppliers Directory listing (TRADA members only)
  • Additional users (TRADA members only)
