When we used to do house burns it was an all day thing. Last one I went too was a whole weekend. As lomg as you take proper breaks, I dont see an issue.Fire Marshal/Safety Officer

In my opinion, I would have to say that there is really no time limit, but that depends on what you are doing. If you have a burn house, instead of doing everything on one weekend, you could train on multiple dates.

That would be state-regulated matter.
We do need a burn-permit and air quality is a major part of that (no asphalt shingles, etc).

As to the main question, I'm not sure there's an exact answer...but I think it's how intense you're going/how good your rehab/how good your physical shape to begin with.
Best class I ever took we were only using three bottles a day (what's that, less then an hour's actual heavy duty work out of 7-1/2 hour class?). You don't realize how much time it sucks up preparing & cleaning up after evolutions, plus time you were on the standby crews outside (not actively participating). Still we where beat by the end of the day, and that was on an overcast day.IACOJ Canine Officer
