Through its 74 accredited agencies, the Pro Board provides a national and international level of recognition for members of the fire and emergency service who have demonstrated proficiency in meeting NFPA professional qualifications standards. These initial accreditations required the agencies to undergo a critical assessment of their ability to meet the 19 point accreditation criteria that has become the hallmark of integrity for the Pro Board system.

“With accreditation, these agencies have shown their commitment to improving life safety for their citizens and emergency personnel,” commented M.H. Jim Estepp, chairman of the Pro Board. “Through accreditation, these agencies can provide official Pro Board certificates to fire service members who have demonstrated a competency with professional qualification standards.”
