Based on the National Wildfire Coordinating Group’s (NWCG) S-130 and S-190 courses, this training covers the basics of such topics as fire behavior, controlled burn techniques, and smoke management. The objective is to provide participants with the background necessary to safely participate on the crew of a controlled burn. Please be aware that although the training is accepted by many of the natural resource management agencies in the C​hicago Wilderness​ region as the minimum training required for a participant on a burn crew, it does not carry the official NWCG certification. $70.00 members and nonmembersLearn more.
