Great news for candidates who successfully complete the NFPA process for the Certified Fire Inspector I (CFI-I), Certified Fire Inspector II (CFI-II), or the Certified Fire Plan Examiner (CFPE) certifications: They'll now be automatically registered with the Pro Board and receive an NFPA certificate bearing the Pro Board logo.
“Our customers have been asking for Pro Board recognition of these three certifications for several years,” said Leon Katcharian, NFPA’s director of NFPA certifications. “We heard those requests and have worked diligently with the Pro Board team to meet their high accreditation standards.”
Groups or individuals that achieve Pro Board accreditation are recognized as having met the rigors of review by an independent organization, assuring candidates and governance bodies that those entities meet the national standards.
“It was very important to the Pro Board that our certification exams assess candidates at the appropriate level and are aligned to NFPA 1031, Professional Qualifications for Fire Inspector and Plan Examiner. It was equally important that our certification policy and procedures were fair to our customers while remaining thorough in execution,” added Katcharian.
