At this time (February 1st) we're waiting on the data transfer project to conclude before making the 2016 Progress Report available. The report will be submitted through the 3.1 site and the Certification Board has not yet set a due date. As soon as it is available, Austin staff will post instructions to the 3.1 landing page and cross post to Facebook.

As long as the training covers the objectives of the SFFMA Certification Program, each of the following options credits toward certification.

  • Training through a regularly organized fire department
  • Training through any state or federal agency (including all branches of the military, as well as through TEEX-ESTI)
  • Training through an accredited college or university 
  • Training from an instructor with SFFMA or TCFP Instructor I (or higher) certification
  • Training as documented with an IFSAC or ProBoard seal
  • Training from an approved for-profit training provider
  • Training from uniquely qualified individuals

On this last option, a “uniquely qualified individual” must have the approval of the department’s fire chief and certification coordinator. An example would be a manufacturer representative providing vehicle familiarization training.
