Any forest land owner, forester, wildlife biologist, consultant, contractor, or agency personnel who is interested in the use of prescribed wildland fire as a management tool and who is seeking certification should attend. Out of state participants are welcome.

  • Who should take the CPBM recertification WORKSHOP? Any current Alabama Certified Prescribed Burn Manager who needs the required 6 CEUs every 5 years for re-certification should take the workshop.
