Workshops and Trainings

The 2nd Applied Fire Science Workshop

We will be making some changes to our usual format for this event. Workshops will be integrated into the whole week rather than having them only on the first day of the event.

There will be three kinds of workshops, trainings, and courses:

1) Rx 310 Introduction to Fire Effects, Beth Buchanan: Tuesday – Friday afternoons and full-day field trip Saturday; students must attend field trip to receive certificate. Pre-registration required. NWCG Certificate upon completion. $60 fee. Tuesday through Friday Afternoons and Saturday Field Trip.

2) Three required pre-registration workshops: we have the following three workshops available which require you to sign-up at the time you register for the Fire Congress. There may be pre-requisites or other requirements. These are available first-come, first-served, and if the workshop fills up you will be placed on a waitlist. Instructors will communicate with you prior to the event. There is no charge for these workshops, but we ask that you let us know if you need to cancel so we can offer your spot to someone else. Dates and times are listed are subject to change.
