May 18, 2011

LIVINGSTON, Ala. - The Alabama Forestry Commission and the Black Belt Conservation and Research Institute will host an Alabama Certified Prescribed Burn Manager course at the University of West Alabama at Alfa Environmental Hall in Livingston, May 24--27.

The 32-hour Alabama Certified Prescribed Burn Manager course will be conducted by Kent Hanby and John Stivers, who say prescribed fire training should be a part of all landowners' management plans.

Students will learn how to conduct a controlled burn while minimizing the likelihood for escaped fire and smoke liability.

Hanby and Stivers together have more than 80 years of experience in managing landscapes using prescribed fire as a primary tool.

The course will cost $100, and pre-registration is required. Each day begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. The first day, students should arrive by 7:30 a.m. for check-in.

Certification requirements:

• Review study material at www.fp.auburn.edu/fire/ before the course.
• Pass a pre-study test over the study material.
• Attend all sessions.
• Pass a final exam with a score of 70 percent.

Those interested in using prescribed fire as a management tool are encouraged to attend even if they do not wish to apply for certification.

The attached PDF includes the registration form.

For additional information, contact Dr. Lee Stanton at (205) 652-3415 or lstanton@uwa.edu.
