NFPA 1001: Firefighter I & II Training Categories
The Certification Program offers full NFPA 1001: Firefighter I & II certifications upon completion of the required training objectives and passing of written and skills examinations. To be clear on this point, the training provided through the SFFMA program covers the same material as a TCFP full-time firefighter academy.
As of January 1, 2015 firefighter certifications require written and skill evaluations to verify an applicant’s proficiency and knowledge.
When the Austin office certification staff approves a Firefighter I or II application, they issue a letter stating that the individual must then challenge full Firefighter I or II written and skills exams.
To challenge the Firefighter II exams, the individual must complete all training and successfully challenge the Firefighter I exams.
