Working Points

To develop a range of collaborations between the School of Natural Resources and the Nebraska Forest Service related to educational credentialing. A couple of starting ideas:

  • Credentialing of red card certifications—and institutionalizing within SNR
  • Fire credentialing for UNL students—fire 2 and 1
  • Short courses with formats that work for both groups
  • What other ways can we work on the teaching side of our program more closely with NFS.

Projected Outcomes

Outcome is an action plan.
