At the conclusion of the course, participants will have a working knowledge of fire terminology, fire law, fire prescriptions, firebreaks, smoke management and a basic understanding how to conduct a prescribed burn. The course is not intended to take the place of state Certification courses, workshops, or experience in the field; but rather to give participants a basic understanding of the principles of prescribed fire and fire effects. To enroll in this course, please visit, create a free account, and search Southeastern Prescribed Fire Training.
