Wildlife Danger Tree Assessor - Wildland Fire Safety Module
Course Duration: 2 Days.

Note, the DTA that we recommend for Fire Suppression is the Wildfire module; however, we recommend that people look to the “Forest Harvesting and Silviculture Module” as well as the “Parks Module” for forestry work.

Course Content: The course is run through the University of Northern BC as a part of their Continuing Studies programs. This is the only course required on the fireline that Strategic Fire Control does not offer as one of its course options (although we almost always organize and host one annually in coordination with the UNBC). Note, there are 3 different modules, and the only one accepted on the fireline is the Wildland Fire Safety Module.
