NCDOI Certification Classes and Hours
NC SOCIETY OF FIRE RESCUE INSTRUCTORS
Linked below are the Fire & Rescue Certification Classes offered by the State of North Carolina. North Carolina has more certifications than most states. North Carolina is a member of the IFSAC ACCREDITATION CONGRESS. The International Fire Service Accreditation Congress currently has 32 Member States. States using IFSAC allow Reciprocity with other member states. This means that if your certification is current in NC - you can file for it to be good in another member state if you relocate. The other accreditation agency in use in the US is PROBOARD.
