Foresters, do you need CFE credits? Well, here's some good news! The Society of American Foresters has approved NFPA's 2015 Backyards & Beyond® Wildland Fire Education Conference as a provider for professional Continuing Forestry Education credits.
Actual CFE credits will depend on which and how many of the individual presentations the attendee chooses to attend. There are over 50 educational sessions in four tracks, including:
- Community Safety Approaches
- Wildfire Planning, Suppression & Operations
- Research (Physical, Social, Ecology & Environmental)
- Technology, Policy & Regulations
Credits are also available for those who attended either the Assessing Wildfire Hazards in the Home Ignition Zone or the Prepare, Mitigate, and Respond with GIS pre-conference workshops.
CFE Attendance Forms will be available at the NFPA Conference Registration Desk. Simply fill out the form during the conference and return it back to the registration desk before the end of the conference to receive credits for work completed. Attending Backyards & Beyond will also provide you with a good opportunity to network with people from different fields to broaden your knowledge about the latest in wildfire mitigation techniques.
