Wildland Fire Safety Training Annual Refresher

Based on your feedback we now know we cannot develop a "one size fits all" program. While we need a foundation of common language and best practices, every firefighter has a set of unique needs. Therefore we are evolving from releasing batches of modules each spring to a year round "produce and post" schedule. As modules are produced, they will be posted on the website and announced to the field. A suite of modules will be available at any given time which will allow users to customize training based upon schedules, specific needs and learning styles.

The Refresher Program is an interagency program. Individual agency requirements can be found on the website under POLICY.
