The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is hosting a Certified Prescribed Burn Manager course.
The course will consist of:
- Approximately 4 hours of Pre-work that will be sent out to students
- Two 8-hour classroom days covering Prescribed Burn content
- A morning field event, followed by an afternoon exam
As a component of the certification process, a student with a passing grade on the exam will coordinate an evaluation burn. The student will lead a prescribed burn while being evaluated by the Certified Burner Program Manager. If all areas of the evaluation are satisfactory the student will be recommended for certification.
