Certification Testing

The department's Certification Coordinator must contact the Austin office at certification@sffma.org to set up a skill exam date at minimum three days in the future.

Austin staff will verify the eligibility of the Lead Evaluator and e-mail all of the necessary documentation (procedural documents, exam eligibility roster(s), and three random skills per level) to him/her two days ahead of the scheduled date. Austin staff will also notify the Zone Representative to verify the scheduling of the examination. Zone Representatives have the option, but not the requirement, to observe skill exams.

At the testing session, the exam coordinator provides exam documents to the Station Evaluator, who then proceeds to administer the individual skill exam. The exam for Firefighter I consists of three skills chosen from the Firefighter I level, including 1403: Introductory, of the Certification Program (one skill required from SCBA). The exam for Firefighter II consists of three skills chosen from the Firefighter II level of the Certification Program.

When finished, the exam coordinator faxes or e-mails all of the documentation to the Austin office to record the grades. The Austin certification staff reports the exam results to the department, makes a notation of successful scores on the individual’s record, and retains a digital copy of exam session documentation.
