NFPA road warrior – Mark Hilbert

Blog Post created by Sean Ryan Employee on Dec 3, 2012


In putting together our semi-annual training catalog, I was introduced to a number of NFPA instructors. One thing, besides the many interesting personalities, was apparent; the amount of experience, wisdom and ability of our instructors is mind boggling. I found their backgrounds fascinating and decided to profile some of our instructors. This is the first of what I hope to be many profiles featured in this space.

Mark Hilbert is one of the stars on our training staff who teaches a number of our electrical seminars. In trying to locate photos of Mark, I was able to connect with him in October, 2012 via phone and e-mail before he left for an NFPA training session in Saudi Arabia. Mark travels frequently on behalf of NFPA, providing organizations abroad with the latest code training available. He was able to send me some interesting photos, one of which is included in this post. Here’s a quick profile on Mark.
