Fire Investigator II

September 16, 2024

Alabama Fire College & Personnel Standards & Education Commission

This course targets Fire Investigators, Fire Marshals, and Law Enforcement Officers with a need to go beyond “what” caused the fire and “where” it started. This course leads to a State of Alabama certification and is not a nationally accredited certification through Pro Board or IFSAC. Fire Investigator II instructs the attendees on how to continue the investigation and discover “who” caused the fire. Students will obtain the skills and knowledge to continue and complete an investigation. Students planning to attend this course should be prepared for an intense week of training and practical skills application. Topics covered include: Investigative Techniques, Crime Scene Photography, Evidence Collection and Analysis, Interviewing Techniques, and Court Procedure and Testifying.

The Fire Investigator series will be updating to the new Standard, NFPA 1033, 2022 edition on June 10, 2023. This will result in a book change for the Fire Investigator series. The new book that will be used for the Fire Investigator series will be IFSTA’s Fire Investigator, 3rd Edition book.
