Prescribed Fire Certification

The Georgia Forestry Commission offers a certification program for those who practice prescribed burning. Applicants may attend one of several training sessions scheduled throughout the year where they will receive a comprehensive study manual and instruction on subjects such as fire behavior, fire weather and fire tactics. The applicants must pass a written test, have two years of experience and meet a prerequisite of having been the person in charge of five prescribed burns before becoming a certified prescribed burner in Georgia.

For more information on certification contact the GFC Prescribed Fire Coordinator at 478-751-3332 or 1-800-GA-TREES.
