S-130/S-190/L-180/is-100/is-700 Introduction Courses - Ashland, OR


S-130 This course addresses the foundational skills universal to all wildland firefighters. The material is broken into 12 online modules (one to three hours each) and a mandatory, instructor-led field day exercise. Each module explains the concepts and skills that will be performed and evaluated on the field day 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.

S-190 This course provides instruction in the primary factors affecting the start and spread of wildfire and recognition of potentially hazardous situations. This course is typically taught in conjunction with or prior to "NWCG S-130, Firefighter Training." The material is broken into three modules (one to three hours each).

L-180 This online course exposes students to human performance concepts as part of basic wildland firefighter training. The course is designed for entry-level operational personnel; however, this course also applies to all wildland fire service personnel, including non-operational personnel.  Additional information about the course can be found in the Field Manager’s Course Guide (PMS 901-1).

is-100/is-700 This course introduces and overviews the National Incident Management System (NIMS). NIMS provides a consistent nationwide template to enable all government, private-sector, and nongovernmental organizations to work together during domestic incidents.
