This course is presented in a 100% virtual format due to COVID-19 restrictions. Both the online and live virtual trainings are REQUIRED

S-131 is a suggested National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) training course designed for individuals with wildland fire experience and currently qualified as a FFT2 desiring to be qualified as a FFT1 or Incident Commander Type 5 (ICT5) in the National Interagency Incident Management System: Wildland Fire Qualification System Guide (PMS-310-1).

*Note: S-133 is no longer offered and content has now been merged into the S-131 course.

This course is designed to be interactive in nature. It contains several tactical decision games designed to facilitate learning the objectives and class discussion. Topics include fireline reference materials, communications, and tactical decision making.
