The material for the Instructor-led delivery of S-260 is not a standard NWCG course material package. This is due to the unique circumstances of S-260 development and certification. The Online Delivered version of S-260 was certified in 2014, and the Instructor-Led course was removed from the NWCG curriculum in 2016.

In 2017, field input regarding online course accessibility and geographic area course updates led to approval of two alternate, instructor-led delivery options. These are:

  1. Instructor-Facilitated, using the online course:  Students will register for self-direct (online) delivery to access the course material. An instructor will facilitate each module of the curriculum. The final exam is included in the online course.
  2. Instructor-Led, using geographic area developed curriculum:  This material will vary by geographic area. However, all deliveries will use the same final exam and meet the S-260 Course Learning Objectives. The Learning Objectives are organized into 12 modules. Each module has an adaptation of the Online Delivered course available for download.


Contact your course coordinator or email for access to the final exam and the final exam answer key.
