This course was developed using a blended approach to learning, meaning that it contains a mix of online and instructor-led training (ILT). The course addresses the foundational skills universal to all wildland firefighters. The material is divided into 12 online modules (1 to 3 hours each) and a mandatory, instructor-led field exercise. Each online module explains the concepts and skills that will be performed and evaluated on the field exercise. Module 12 contains optional knowledge areas (pump operations, map and compass, fire investigation and cultural resources)
that are very useful concepts. To succeed on the field exercise, students must understand the concepts taught in modules 1 through 12 as documented by module certificates of completion. Both students and instructors can find an overview of the field exercise in module 13. This module informs instructors how to set up the exercise, lists materials needed, and provides evaluation checklists. It also provides students an idea of what to expect and what they will be evaluated on. There is a challenge review at the end of each module. If you successfully complete the challenge review, you will be able to print a module certificate of completion. Before you begin the challenge review, you MUST be connected to an active printer! A version of Human Factors on the Fireline (L-180) is included in this course. Credit will be issued for both S-130 and L-180 upon completion. Field Exercises-Dress Appropriately.
