Online Courses

Note to wildland firefighter personnel taking a course to fulfill NWCG training requirements:
The NWCG will only acknowledge completion of these courses by those who are affiliated with an NWCG member agency (through direct membership or agreement) or a member of a fire department. To receive credit from the NWCG for completing these courses, do not attempt this training unless you have been directed to do so by a wildland fire agency or fire department, and you are working with a course administrator.

A course administrator is a person responsible for guiding a student through a self-paced course (computer based or paper based). Course administrators must meet qualifications set forth in the Field Manager’s Course Guide for each particular course; have general administrative knowledge of testing, certificates of completion and qualification system of record for the agency or agencies involved; and must be available in person, by phone, or by email to assist the student during the completion of the course.

To obtain a course administrator, Federal and State government employees must go through their agency or state fire training staff. If you are part of a local government agency please contact your State Forestry office to request their "sponsorship" for NWCG training. Contract employees must go through their company.

All students are encouraged to keep their NWCG online course certificates as proof of successful completion.
