    Post Wildland Cause and Origin Training?

    Wildland cause and origin determiation?

    I hoping to give structural fire departments that response to wildfires here in Kentucky some background in wildland fire investgation.Kentucky has a high wildland arson rate.In some cases in Kentucky,more than 55% of all ground cover fires are arson.Most of those fires do not get look at by an investgator unless the fire is on federal lands.I hoping for some suggestions.I under stand there is some NWGC courses.If so were can I find more information about training programs available.
