This S-290 course is the second course in five course sequence developing wildland fire behavior prediction knowledge and skills.

Because of the current Covid 19 environment the delivery of this course will be done online rather than having the students be required to come together in a formal classroom setting.

After the student has completed the online portion of the course, they will need to complete additional course materials sent to them electronically instead of attending a formal classroom session to discuss fuels, weather and topography and complete an exercise to for a specific site in Wisconsin. After the student has successfully completed all of the online modules and the other the additional online materials, they will receive a certificate.
