The 1992 Georgia Legislature passed the Prescribed Burning Act which allowed the Georgia Forestry Commission to promulgate a Prescribed Burn Manager Certificate Program. Although certification is not required to practice prescribed burning in Georgia, the program is offered in the interest of higher learning and achievement for qualified prescribed burn practitioners. Certification includes self study of materials provided by mail prior to the program, followed by a training session and written test. Applicants scoring 70% or better on this test will receive a numbered certificate.

Designed for: Prescribed Burning Managers. To be successfully certified applicants must have been in charge of five prescribed burns and have two years work experience in a forestry related field or have completed a university-sponsored prescribed burn course.
