|Course Name:||S-130 - Basic Wildland (Firefighter 2)|
This course was developed using a blended approach to learning. The course addresses the foundational skills universal to all wildland firefighters. The material is divided into 12 online modules (1 to 3 hours each) and a mandatory, instructor-led field exercise. Each online module explains the concepts and skills that will be performed and evaluated on the field exercise. Module 12 contains optional knowledge areas (pump operations, map, and compass, fire investigation, and cultural resources) that are very useful concepts but not required due to time constraints.
To succeed in the field exercise, students must understand the concepts taught in modules 1 through 11 as documented by module certificates of completion. Both students and instructors can find an overview of the field exercise in module 13. This module informs instructors on how to set up the exercise, lists materials needed, and provides evaluation checklists. It also provides students an idea of what to expect and what they will be evaluated on.
There is a challenge review at the end of each module. If you successfully complete the challenge review, you will be able to print a module certificate of completion. Before you begin the challenge review, you MUST be connected to an active printer!
The Instructor will be contacting students once they are enrolled.

Course Cancellation Policies
In rare cases, classes may be canceled due to very low enrollment or weather conditions. If this occurs, students will be notified and will have the option of attending another class or request a refund within two weeks of cancellation.
Cancel more than three business days in advance of the class start date and you’ll receive a full refund minus a $10 cancellation fee. Cancel three working days or less and receive a 50% refund minus a $10 cancellation fee. Once class begins, however, refunds will not be given.
Inclement Weather Policy
If a workshop is canceled due to an unexpected College closure (i.e., weather conditions, etc.) all attempts will be made to reschedule the class. Only if the class cannot be rescheduled will a full refund then be issued. Please listen to the radio or check the College website in order to determine if the school has closed. Every effort will be made to inform you of a class cancellation due to inclement weather. If you are unable to attend due to the weather in your area—but the class has not been canceled—you are still responsible to contact the department 24 hours in advance of the class start date.
Please contact us with any questions you may have prior to registration.
