Forest Service Agency Administrator Certification
In 2019 a new Agency Administrator certification process was adopted for fire management. Separate certifications are required for managing wildfires and prescribed fires. Details of the certification process can be found in Chapter 5 of the Red Book. This new process includes the completion of a taskbook similar to those required for other fire positions.
WFDSS Refresher Training
This document is a reference for individuals putting together annual WFDSS training refreshers for Agency Administrator; the Interagency Standards for Fire and Fire Aviation Operations (Red Book) Appendix N recommends a 2 hour refresher. The training recommendations provided in this document are not new but highlight the important topics and what is available.
2019 Agency Administrator WFDSS Refresher
Watching this video serves as a 1-hour WFDSS refresher for 2019, but you must document this at your local unit as needed; WFDSS or the WFM RD&A do not provide certificates for watching videos. This was 1-hour when presented "live" but was edited down to 45 minutes by removing pauses. It still counts as an hour (you're welcome)!
The Agency Administrator taskbook, Pathways charts, and qualifications crosswalk describing the required training and experience for wildland and prescribed fire can be downloaded below.
