CDF 67 hr Wildland Cert

Hi, my name is Eric Costello and I currently have ALL other certs expect for my CDF 67 hr wildland academy cert. I have been trying like crazy to find a school in California that has one but I keep coming up empty handed! If you could just point me in the right direction as to where or who might know of a CDF 67 hr wildland cert course- it would be very much appreciated!!
Thank you for your help,
Eric Costello

You should contact your local CDF unit headquarters and talk to training or hiring. They should be able to help you.

Good Luck!

I have contacted them and I never can get a straight answer so I thought that I would try here...


If hired as a FFI for CDF some units will actually put you through the 67 hour certification prior to getting on an engine(and pay you while in their academy). Lassen-Modoc does it every year. I know its a bit of a drive for you but a good way to get some experience.

Hope that helps,


Look under and look under training.

Good Luck

Hey thanks! I actually just filled out my app for them this afternoon!

OH MY GOD! THANK YOU! This is exactly what i needed! You have no idea how much I appreciate your help!!!
