Wildfire Training Instruction & Refresher Courses

Wildfire Training Instruction & Refresher Courses

We generally offer the RT-130 to contractors in the Spring of each year, and the other courses as needed or requested. The annual RT-130 training courses are offered in Grangeville, ID and Moscow, ID. Depending on class size and need we are also able to provide on-site courses at times and locations that best meet team needs. Class sizes range from 15 to 80 or more for the RT-130. Call us for minimum class sizes and alternate locations.

Our staff are a team of active wildland firefighters who can provide various trainings through an agreement with the USFS. We follow the guidance of the National Wildfire Coordinating Group for all our trainings and provide these trainings to area contractors to enable them to supplement local, state, and federal fire suppression programs.

Foresters Forum

Foresters Forum

In 2001, Northwest Management, Inc. and Idaho Forest Associates initiated a unique conference for professional foresters targeted to promote continuing education, ethics and pride in our profession. Over the years, this annual conference has grown to include valuable information and workshops for all natural resource professionals. The conference delivers high quality workshops on new ideas, technologies, and emerging policy and professional issues.

The Annual Foresters Forum will be held at The Coeur d’Alene Resort in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The forum is a fantastic venue for Inland Northwest foresters and resource professionals to focus on their profession, share information and learn new ideas, techniques and technologies. We are pleased to present high achieving and richly experienced speakers from all over the nation. Over 90% of the material presented at the forum is new every year, and this year will be no different.

SAF National Convention

SAF National Convention

Sacramento, CA • October 25-28, 2023

The theme, “Forestry: It’s in Our DNA,” references both the proud legacy of forestry and the ongoing challenges and opportunities that foresters and natural resources professionals face. Forestry and what it means to be a forester is multi-faceted with many backgrounds, disciplines, and experiences shaping our profession’s past, present, and future. SAF2023 will bring together novel science and on-the-ground management techniques, while focusing on how to better communicate our passion to the public, and building a community that can tackle impacts from a changing climate.

Check back later this month for more details about the convention themes, location, sponsor and exhibitor opportunities, and call for proposal process.
