  • Description

    Get one-of-a-kind training that prepares you to identify wildland fire risks to structures and confidently recommend effective safety measures to property owners.

    This interactive, redesigned NFPA® Assessing Structure Ignition Potential from Wildfire 2-Day Classroom Training is based on fire science research into how homes and other structures ignite during wildfires and covers wildfire behavior, structure exposure, and the concept of the Home Ignition Zone. You'll learn how to analyze wildfire risks to structures and provide actionable advice to property owners through an activity-rich curriculum.

    In a learning environment that encourages discussion and interaction, sessions are taught by wildland fire specialists who understand how and why homes and communities are destroyed during wildfire events and the simple things that residents can do to minimize property loss.

    A Certificate of Completion is available after the course upon completion of an online exam.

    • Explain major issues that contribute to wildland/urban fire losses in the United States.
