The Association of Fire Ecology's (AFE) Wildland Fire Professional Certification Program is designed to further ecologically-based fire science and management. The complexity and importance of fire science and management is increasing worldwide. To meet the increasing demands for effective analysis, decision-making, and workforce development in a the changing fire landscape, the Education Committee of the Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) has developed a Professional Certification Program for fire ecologists, managers, and technicians. The goals of the program are to formally identify fire careers as vital professions, to set standards for the preparation of future fire professionals, and to document the education, experience, and training qualifications of members of the fire ecology and management profession.
Application deadline is Sept. 1, 2016.
