Additional online courses offered

These courses are not directly part of the Undergraduate Fire Ecology and Management Certificate, but are available to satisfy additional units that may be needed beyond the certificate. These courses are regular Northern Arizona University distance learning courses and are not designed especially for managers. Current offerings are a good introduction to Vista and Forestry.

Please Note: There is some indication that 100 and 200 level courses may not satisfy the 401-series requirements. Please check with your human resources officer.
