Sounds like a great program for individuals with little experience to get some great exposure and qualifications in the wildland realm. I don't know anything personally about the organization or cadre putting on the class, but by the certifications list, it sounds pretty solid. As a volunteer Firefighter, I was able to get most of these in our training and it for sure helped me get hired!

Looks like a great way to get some good experience if you have the time and cash, did anyone see anywhere what certs you get? Hopefully cal fire basic is included in this as well as a red card, 14 days seems like it would easily cover those requirements

"Throughout the academy representatives from various agencies visit to evaluate academy recruits for potential career and seasonal firefighter positions. Students receive substantial guidance on job seeking and the hiring process. Those interested in employment start the application process immediately for seasonal, emergency on-call and apprentice wildland firefighter jobs including engine, hotshot and helitack crews."


That's a cool bonus. One of the local community colleges down here has a wildland fire academy and they too have agencies come out to potentially hire the students right out of the gate.
