The Fire Service Training Bureau, is proud to offer National Certification for the Iowa Fire Service through accreditation with the International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC). This accreditation assures firefighters that the testing is unbiased, current, and conforms to recognized national standards.

Additionally, the Fire Service Training Bureau is currently working towards receiving accreditation through the National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications (ProBoard). We anticipate receiving this additional ProBoard accreditation during the first half of the 2017 calendar year.


All levels of certification begin with the candidate submitting a Certification Registration form and fee. Please submit your Certification Registration Form at least three weeks before the test date.
