Refresher Training Requirements

Recurrent Training

In order to maintain currency, some positions have identified recurrent training (RT) at various intervals. For more information, consult the Field Manager's Course Guide, PMS 901-1.

Annual Fireline Safety Refresher (RT-130)

Attendance at an RT-130 is required for designated positions in order to maintain currency, and for all personnel assigned to positions with fireline duties and for any position assigned to the fireline for nonsuppression tasks.
RT-130 training will focus on mandatory core content subjects and not on a minimum timeframe standard (number of training hours). The required number of hours is determined by the agency.

Please refer to the 2012 Wildland Fire Qualification System Guide (PMS 310-1) at for positions that require Annual Fireline Safety Refresher Training.
