Wildfire Risk Assessment Qualification 

You can help us evaluate and improve our new Wildfire Qualification!

The threat wildfire poses to residents of Texas increases everyday as more people move into once natural areas. We know that it is not a question of if a fire will start, but when. As professionals who have daily interaction with the public, and who care about the wellbeing of our native ecosystems, arborists are in a unique position to spread the message about how simple protecting lives, homes and landscapes can be. When homes and their surrounding property are protected, all of the inherent ecosystem benefits at threat from wildfire can be protected as well.

By taking the Wildfire Risk Assessment Qualification course, you will become more knowledgeable about how to evaluate and mitigate property from the threat wildfire poses. 

This beta session will include 12 hours of instruction and four hours allocated for written and practical examinations. The content will cover five learning domains. A new assessment form to define your role in mitigating wildfire risk for your clients will be provided. Your critique and feedback will be important for development of this qualification. 


Usual price is $250. The special price for this evalution version of the workshop is $125.

Limited to 12 students and lunch will be provided both days.
