  • Wildland fire refresher training (RT 130) ensures that wildland firefighters have information regarding current issues and the upcoming fire season. Wildland refresher training is required annually by all federal, state and contract firefighters.

    Training is provided to recognize and mitigate risk, maintain safe and effective firefighting practices, and reduce accidents and near misses. Clackamas Community College offers a five-hour refresher course each season. The college may be able to arrange courses geared toward agency-specific requirements such as Fireline EMTs.

    The Work Capacity (Pack) Test is also a yearly requirement for all fireline personnel. We offer the pack test at all three levels: arduous, moderate and light. As a recognized Public Training Provider, our pack tests are overseen by the Oregon Department of Forestry and fulfill the requirement for all agencies. We may be able to accommodate organizations wishing to host their own Refresher Courses or Pack tests.

    The 2017 RT 130 refresher and pack test will be on May 15th.
