Curriculum/Testing Services manages all testing and accreditation for the State Fire Academy’s certification programs including the Candidate Physical Ability Test (CPAT). We currently have 24 levels of certification accredited by the International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC), and 32 levels of certification accredited by the National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications (ProBoard). All of these certifications are based on the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards. Our Bureau also is responsible for the State Fire Academy’s public relations efforts. Some of those efforts include coordinating the Fire Academy’s Honor Guard and producing State Fire Academy publications. Additionally, we conduct guided tours of the campus for civic and social groups which includes a fire safety education presentation. If you require additional information about any of these areas, please email Shannon Sandridge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
