There are over 70 agencies accredited by the Pro Board, and they offer accredited certification to fire service professionals across North America, and around the world.

The International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC) is a not-for-profit, peer-driven, self-governing system of both fire service certifying entities and higher education fire-related degree programs. IFSAC’s mission is to plan and administer a high-quality, uniformly delivered accreditation system with an international scope.
