|Wildland Fire On-the-Job Training|
This Information Bulletin provides Bureau of Land Management (BLM) employees an opportunity to gain operational experience and to complete position task books (PTBs). Trainees must meet the training and qualifications requirements for the position and have a PTB initiated. The operations assignments will target each individual’s PTB completion needs.
The application process is accomplished by completing the "Request for BLM Wildland Fire OJT Program" nomination form.
Trainees will be selected bases on state priorities, availability, career development needs, and percentage of PTB completed.
All base labor cost will be the responsibility of the home unit. Other cost (travel, per diem, and overtime) will be covered by the requesting unit through national severity funding, national preposition funding, or incident codes. In rare cases, funding for travel costs and per diem may be available from the BLM Fire Training Unit.
