Description

The U.S. Forest Service has created a Fuels Academy Pilot Project to accelerate and improve the training for new and aspiring Fuels Specialists. This Training and Career Guide represents the latest iteration in a continuing effort to help our developing employees gain competence quicky and efficiently to meet the challenges of growing fuels programs. It is intended as a guide for Fuels Academy participants while they are in the Academy and beyond. While it was created for use by the USFS Fuels Academy, any employee plotting a course for a career in Prescribed Fire and Fuels Management and their supervisors are encouraged to utilize the guide as well. There are four key components: (1) Competencies and KSA's, (2) Training and Development Resources, (3) Career Development Guide, and (4) Personal Career Tracking Record.
