The Certification Bureau at the Mississippi State Fire Academy proudly serves firefighters from across the State of Mississippi through the delivery of NFPA-based courses coupled with essential hands-on training that is based on nationally recognized industry standards (almost all courses are IFSAC and Pro-Board accredited).
Programs such as fire officer, fire instructor, and fire inspector are academically intensive designed to challenge each student through high academic standards providing firefighters the practical and cognitive training needed to operate safely and effectively on the fire ground.
If a department plans on conducting a field delivery program, we ask that the responsible officer ensure that items such as field request forms and roll sheets are turned in to the Academy as soon as possible. This will allow us to better schedule test dates on your desired days.
The MSFA continues to offer the following courses in an online delivery format:
- Fire Officer NFPA 1021-I-II
- Fire Officer NFPA 1021-II
- Fire Instructor NFPA 1041-I-II
- Fire Instructor NFPA 1041-II

The Certification Staff looks forward to seeing you. If we can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
