The fire service and other emergency responders in North America have a well-developed infrastructure to address professional qualifications (Pro-Qual), and this includes the eighteen separate standards administered by the NFPA Pro-Qual Project.  However, there are various technical and procedural issues requiring attention, and similarly, there are questions on the future vision of the Pro-Qual infrastructure.

To address these issues and to clarify the future vision of these activities, a 1 1/2 day workshop was held on 13-14 April 2011 in Irving, Texas.  The workshop was hosted by NFPA with support for administration, implementation and documentation provided by the Fire Protection Research Foundation. A report on the workshop will be available in the next several weeks and will available on the Foundation’s website.
