Welcome to the Mid-Atlantic Wildfire Training Academy

West Virginia University will host the Tenth annual Mid-Atlantic Wildfire Training Academy June 4-10, 2016 in Morgantown, West Virginia. The academy is presented by the Mid-Atlantic Forest Fire Compact, the West Virginia University School of Natural Resources, and the USDA Forest Service.

The Wildfire Academy will offer a suite of courses in essential wildland firefighting skills, from basic to advanced levels. The courses will meet the National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) standards, and upon successful completion of the class a student will receive a NWCG certificate. The instructors are NWCG certified and will be from states in the Mid-Atlantic area.

The classes will be held on the campus of West Virginia University and are limited in size to promote the best learning experience. Several of the courses have pre-course work that the student must complete before attending the class. All classes will include either written or practical tests used to judge the student’s comprehension of the subject matter.
