The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) announced the recognition of its certification team as a Pro Board accredited entity. Candidates who pass the latest NFPA Pro Board accredited exams and complete the certification process for the Certified Fire Inspector I (CFI-I), Certified Fire Inspector II (CFI-II), or the Certified Fire Plan Examiner (CFPE) will now be automatically registered with the Pro Board and will receive an NFPA certificate bearing the Pro Board logo.

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.
“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.”  For more information go to: nfpa.org/certification .
