COURSE DESCRIPTION:
 

The BC Forest Service Wildfire Management Branch recognizes Basic Fire Suppression and Safety (S-100) training only when delivered by a BCFS-endorsed instructor, and only when the S-100 curriculum is delivered in the approved format. S-100 training will be delivered over two full days: one day in the classroom (theory), and second day in the field (practical exercise).

Course can be updated, if done within one year of taking the full two day S100/185 course. This is called the annual update or S100a and can be given in under 4 hours. Some places you can take it on line but we recommend that a qualifies instructor give the course, as it involves important safety reminders.


  • Worksafe BC requires anyone who actions a forest fire to be S100 certified.
  • BC Ministry of Forest requires an occupant, especially within 1 ½ km of a fire, to report and action a fire.
  • Companies coming to and /or operating in BC must show due diligence and responsible protection for members of their crews by ensuring that members are S100 certified.

Course duration is 2 days but please call us first. We need to discuss the current experience and certification of your crew so that we can estimate the course duration for your specific crew.
