NWCG Position Task Book Catalog
NWCG position task books (PTBs) are a key component of the qualification process for specified NWCG positions. The PTB provides an observable, measurable, and standardized means to evaluate and document trainee proficiency. Evaluation Records and PTB Verification/Certifications may be completed in hard copy or electronically provided all documentation is available to the Evaluator.
NWCG member agencies maintain agency-specific position task books. These are available at https://www.nwcg.gov/publications/agency-taskbooks.
