Prince Edward County Fire & Rescue is honoured in hosting the NFPA Certified Fire Plan Examiner 3-day classroom training with optional exam on September 10 through September 13, 2018.

  • The Certified Fire Plan Examiner: 3-Day Classroom Training (with Optional Certification Exam) is based on the job requirements found in NFPA 1031: Standard for Professional Qualifications for Fire Inspector and Plan Examiner, 2014 Edition.

This NFPA® classroom training prepares you to take the Certified Fire Plan Examiner (CFPE) certification exam. Three days of practical and interactive, expert-led instruction teaches you how to apply NFPA 101®: Life Safety Code® concepts in today’s complex built environment, and sharpens your skills around code and standard requirements involving automatic sprinkler systems and fire alarm and signaling systems. The program also reviews the administrative sections of NFPA 1: Fire Code, so you understand legal issues relevant to the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). The Certified Fire Plan Examiner (CFPE) certification exam is offered on an optional fourth day.
