These courses are designed for instructor-led delivery. This enables dynamic, face-to-face, interaction among students and experienced practitioners, and enhances the learning experience. Instructors intending to deliver these courses should order course materials from the NWCG National Fire Equipment System Catalog - Part 2: Publications, PMS 449-2, or the Catalogs and Ordering Information page.

NWCG intends to make all training and performance support content freely available from the website so it is fully interconnected, easily accessible, and can readily serve as reference material for students and practitioners. This effort is ongoing.
