The goal is to expand upon currently available wildland fire training opportunities, to capitalize on the University of Montana’s expertise in program planning and management, and most importantly to provide high quality, low cost training opportunities for wildland firefighters – whether they are privately or government employed. All courses are completely sanctioned by National Wildfire Coordinating Group and the Northern Rockies Training Group and will be administered completely and professionally.
