« back to classes page
Wildland fires are becoming more and more common and it seems like there is always a new fire burning through the west.
Have you ever had interest in working to combat such fires? Do you think you would enjoy a physically demanding job in the great outdoors where you can have the opportunity to save lives and property?
Wildland firefighting might be of interest to you.

The S130/190 wildland firefighting class consists of 30 hours of online training and culminates with an optional 1-day field training experience.

To attend the field training you must bring a print out of your completion certificate or you will not be permitted to participate. You may choose to test for your Red-card after this training, which allows you to accept jobs as a wildland firefighter.

The online class is free to take, but if you want to participate in field training there will be a $10 charge that is due day of training.

For field training you will need a pair of leather boots, jeans, and work gloves, as well as a print out of your completion certificate.

You must be at least 18 years old to participate in this class.
