There is required aviation training through the Department of the Interior. There are 4 on-line computer courses to be completed with a fifth recommended. Upon successful completion there will be a certificate that you may print out for your records. You should also forward it to your company. As I understand it you must present this certificate to the OAS Check Pilot, or at least be on record as having completed it, when you go to get re-carded.

The courses can be found at the Interagency Aviation Training website. The link is at the bottom.

There are 3 required courses to complete for Helicopter pilots. They are as follows:

H1: Basic Fire Behavior & Tactics
H2: Organization, Communication & Airspace
H3: Fire Helicopter Operations
 

and, highly recommended, just in case:
