CSITMS-FM logo-rgb.jpgNFPA reached out recently to several thousand facilities managers and asked them the following question, “How can NFPA certifications best meet your needs?” The results overwhelmingly pointed to a huge desire for professional credentials that span a wide range of industries and that highlight the knowledge and competence of facilities managers to their management and other stakeholders.


To that end, NFPA is pleased to announce its newest certification, the Certified Sprinkler ITM Specialist Program (CSITMS), which confirms 1) a facilities manager’s knowledge of the many challenges associated with a proper inspection, testing, and maintenance (ITM) program for water-based fire protection systems, and 2) that a facilities manager is able to keep their facility in compliance with the 2014 edition of NFPA 25, Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-based Fire Protection Systems.


This certification is the second in a series for facilities managers. Find out more about the first, Certified Life Safety Specialist (CLSS-HC) for Health Care Facility Managers.


Start today and gain the confidence you need to advance your career and get the recognition you deserve as an expert in your field. For more information about the CSITMS certification and to find all of the CSITMS candidate materials, visit
