The Florida Division of Forestry and University of Florida Cooperative Extension Service will be conducting a Certified Pile Burners Course that will show you how to burn piles legally, safely and efficiently.
Most importantly, it could save a life. If you burn piles regularly, don’t put off registering for this training. When the weather is dry, certified pile burners will receive priority for authorization to burn.

Also, certified pile burners are allowed to burn up to two hours longer per day and get multiple day authorizations. Don’t wait. The number of trainings offered and attendance at each training is LIMITED.

This training will be held from 8:00 am till 4:30 pm at the Southwest Florida Research and Education Center in Immokalee.
