A quiet morning …

The fire field was quiet Thursday morning at the Annual Industrial School. Since 7 a.m., students have been taking written tests to achieve their Pro Board Certifications. The Pro Board accredits fire service training agencies that use the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA's) professional qualification standards.

TEEX is accredited by the NFPA to issue certifications and the credentials are recognized world-wide. In fact, TEEX is qualified to issue over 35 different Pro Board certifications.

This week, some of the students are taking one of the following certification courses:
  • Instructor Level I

  • Industrial Firefighting – Exterior
  • Industrial Firefighting – Interior
  • Industrial Firefighting – Leadership
  • Hazmat Technician
