Basic Wildland Firefighter Training

Are you looking for a summer job or a career with a natural resource agency? Will your career include prescribed burning for habitat and conservation management? Do you want to improve your wildland fire knowledge and obtain national certification?

This training is part of the wildland and prescribed fire qualifications system used by all federal agencies (such as the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land management, National Park Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs or U.S. Fish and Wildlife) and many state and private wildland and prescribed fire management agencies.

This course will assist in your preparation for national certification, and is taught by representatives of the Six Rivers National Forest. Specifically, students will earn certificates for the following classes:

  • I-100 Introduction to Incident Command System
  • L-180 Human Factors on the Fireline
  • S-190 Introduction to Wildland Fire Behavior
  • S-130 Firefighting Training
  • IS-700 National Incident Management System (NIMS)

Attendance all days is required. Pre-registration is required by March 8.
