After you completed the tutorial, you will be prompted to take the final exam. The final exam consists of 30 multiple choice questions. A minimum score of 70% is required to pass. If you do not pass the final exam after three attempts, you will need to complete the entire course again, starting with Unit 1. You may retake this course as many times as necessary to pass.
Once you have passed the exam, you can print a system generated certificate that verifies your successful completion of the course. If necessary, the course administrator can provide an NWCG certificate to the student upon successful completion of the course.
Note: In order for you to print the Certificate of Training, the computer you are working from must be connected to a functioning printer. If you fail to print the certificate, you will need to retake the course. Certificates or completion are not tracked or saved by this software.
A course administrator that has completed the I-200 course must be available in person, by phone,
or by email to assist the student during the completion of this course. The course administrator should provide certification for the student upon completion.
