Good information that all wildland firefighters should know.
Mc98 2018-09-28 18:20:34

Learned about the different types of wind systems.
cody1 2018-09-26 16:00:59

this unit was a little hard to follow
damonap 2018-09-23 22:19:22

On occasion, the photos are vague and difficult to label. Also, two of the questions in the course; determining anemometer speed by using the sum of the upper and ground level speeds wasn't discussed until after I missed the question. Good class though.
jproctor 2018-09-23 13:06:47

RAMalahy 2018-09-07 10:57:44

It was difficult material to fully comprehend but mostly gave me a better understanding of wind in general.
FiremedicJR 2018-09-01 13:53:17

this class was difficult to understand please simplify
edaw 2018-08-23 00:41:12

I thought the class guides you through the topics efficiently and provides a lot of insight into the study of weather.
Oconnell71 2018-08-18 11:19:52

Need to keep it simple and less of the scientific extreme crap.

wwills3379 2018-07-04 15:24:33

The topographic maps are still difficult to read and should be designed differently so that the elevation levels are more clear.

This class was hard to follow for someone without a weather background.
egravin 2018-06-08 14:12:43

Too much information, all stuff we can receive from google or weather reports. We are not meteorologist and should concentrate on the basics as to to overfill and already full bucket.
rwilson36 2018-06-01 20:33:03

Great lesson

take your time
pbyrne 2018-05-25 20:45:54

It is very difficult to see what the wind/cloud formations are doing with the low resolution videos
j.crabtree 2018-05-24 20:38:04

its ok
kyleesrb 2018-05-14 16:34:25

This unit about wind systems is exactly what I needed to better understand what I've been hearing on fires, especially when in the lower 48.
mitch1981 2018-05-08 10:54:49

Having to take survey to get cert is dumb

danthehampoitras@hotmail.com 2018-05-05 12:10:38

Still feel like the questions are misleading that adds nothing to the full comprehension of the material.
Robb 2018-05-04 13:25:57

Good course....question in Section 2-review question is misleading. Scenario places firefighter on Pacific coast but answers are written as if East Coast is locale. Statements such as landbreeze at night from East to West; local winds off Pacific Ocean from East to West
ajb862 2018-05-02 14:42:09

Most of the photos are difficult to see with any detail.
KimberlyK 2018-04-28 21:59:19

Annettemorales1 2018-04-28 15:24:59

great class
biggus 2018-04-26 10:00:53

was ok. could be a little more clear about wind principles. I just felt like i needed to run through it again when doing the test. Then felt like googling for more info.

rosika14 2018-03-16 15:45:41

Long chapter. Hard to maintain all information. At least online.
ConservationDigest 2018-03-14 18:53:11

Toughest section so far. Lots to remember.
salus004 2018-02-22 16:40:21

This lesson contained A LOT of information that is relevant and important but because it is all mashed together in a mega-lesson, it is hard to focus on all the details and really nail down the concepts. It would be better to split this lesson up or have additional review questions that nail down definitions and major take-aways.

Great, gave explanations and great visual aids to reinforce ideas.
tyjackson 2018-01-24 09:31:31

It's distracting to me when the written portion of a slide does not coincide with the narrators comments word for word. I find it much more efficient for me to understand when I can read the slide as the narrator speaks verbatim.

jtomastarrago 2017-08-25 13:06:30

I ve learnt new contents about meteorology. Very interesting the videos shown in this unit. I strongly recommend this unit. It could be nice to find the same unit set up in Europe to realize how are the general winds dynamics.

less hypothetical questions and more based on what was taught just teach general wind patterns how to spot them and how to apply it to lces process

Horrible use of videos. Online instruction is a poor excuse for actual classroom instruction.
MJEvans46 2017-03-24 23:25:06

good info poor video examples on some of the scenarios
curtisjensen 2017-03-24 21:18:12

it was ok. there was a video of a fire whirl during the slides that you had to answer a question about. I think it gave you three options, you really couldn't tell it was a fire whirl though so I got the answer wrong
matthew2017 2017-03-23 13:20:21

it could of been more specific with what you will be asked on the test
ktrsdmlk 2017-03-19 21:25:01

Some of the questions depend on how you interpret what is said

CAZMAN408 2017-01-28 12:43:34

TMI, Poor examples and or videos. One such quiz example shows avery hard to read fire whirl. We are students looking to learn practical application for safety and tactical decision making. . Our meteorologist will give the ICP and div, sup's the forecast. Far too much information, Only needed about half of it. or less in depth information for the general principal items
m104 2017-01-23 07:58:01

This program is very well out together for a web based program.
jackchristmas13 2017-01-13 16:12:38

nhansen1123 2016-09-22 13:10:04

I don't like the change in format of the 1 2 3 4 tabs along the top of the lesson window. It is a different format than all the other pages, and makes it really easy to mill entire pages and a large chunk of material. I would prefer if all those tabs were organized along the left side of the screen like every other screen.

eagleye 2016-03-18 19:35:19

Module was fairly long, confusing, and difficult to understand. If they module wasn't so long and a little more basic in its writing scale i would believe score and understanding the material would reflect in a more positive view.
daaguil 2015-03-30 17:58:20

test was unfair
Prairiefire 2015-03-06 11:11:39

This module was long and difficult. Much of it was not relatable to mine of work, which may explain my confusion. I think this module would be easier to complete if it were divided into two separate modules.
God's Rebel 2014-02-03 08:10:59

This module was very informative and easy to understand. I would recommend this module to anyone wanting to learn more about wildfires.
JRC#738 2013-12-27 19:02:31

Just as we were taught on structural fires to drive around and evaluate and think about the various buildings and structures in our vicinity, I will no longer gaze into the sky and just think about clouds being all the same!
kcrecelius 2013-12-01 22:14:28

This is very useful to line supervisors. Excellent information. Case studies at the end were excellent and provided an opportunity to put it all together. Would love to have had a dozen more case studies to practice.
