Wildland Fire


Wildland Fire Training courses are designed to satisfy two community needs:

  • To teach basic skills to those entering the profession
  • To upgrade the skills of professional firefighters
RCC offers exceptional coursework:
  • Coursework is accredited through the Pacific Northwest Coordinating Group (PNWCG) training working team.
  • RCC partners with PNWCG to accomplish delivery of courses.
  • All courses are open to federal, state and local agencies, as well as industry and contractors.
  • RCC is one of only two colleges in Oregon to offer the Language Skills Assessment for contract resources.
  • All wildland firefighters–state, federal, and contracted–are required to take the Annual Fireline Safety Refresher course; to ensure that training requirement is met, RCC offers the course several times each year.
RCC offers flexibility:
  • Courses are scheduled “as needed” and will be offered if enrollment is sufficient.
  • Most courses are offered weekdays and can be completed within a week.
  • If this timeframe does not meet agency or contractor needs, RCC may be able to provide courses on a schedule that will.
Course requirements:
  • Students must begin courses at their skill level and meet course pre-requisites.
  • Students must pass courses with a grade of “C” or better to receive a certificate of attendance.
  • In addition to training received in the classroom, some courses require training in the field.
