Is there any way to pass or to be a certified NFPA 1001 directly from NFPA? Because I have seen few firefighting job advertisements in which it was mentioned that, applicants should must have NFPA 1001 qualification. Kindly guide me!
Hi Tasawar - NFPA does not offer NFPA 1001 certification directly. I am going to move this question over to the Emergency Response Forum to see if others have recommendations. Best of luck!
Here in the US, it seems most states or other training authorities adopt fire training curriculum that meet the requirements of NFPA 1001. These entities are the certifying agents for their areas. The issue we see is not all entities reciprocate with each other, thus a firefighter certified to the NFPA 1001 level in Maine may have to re-take or test in another state? Very often career FD's require all new hires to meet their own training requirements regardless of previous certifications. I suspect this is very different in other countries like the UK, where the national body is in charge of all fire services, much like the military?
