Forestry Division Wildland Class Schedule

Welcome to the Arkansas Department of Agriculture Forestry Division class on Wildland Firefighting. This class introduces how Fire Departments and Forestry personnel will work together to stop a fire. Wildland Firefighting and Structural firefighting are very different situations, yet we share many of the same thought processes when we deal with fires.

This class will not qualify you as a Wildland Firefighter. In order to be a Wildland Firefighter many hours of training are required. Through this class, you will learn how Forestry works on fire incidents. Through communication, cooperation, and coordination, our agencies will be able to provide a positive outcome to the incident, the fire is extinguished. We always do this with Safety in mind.

In order to receive a certificate for this course, the student must: Attend the entire course, take an end-of-course test, and pass the test. The test will cover the course material.
