  • Need help with certs..

    I'm being hired by KBR and they told me my IFSAC certs wont do. They said KBR only excepts Proboard or DOD. Anyone know the quickest way to get my IFSAC certs transfered? I already told them that it is posted in the job listing requirements on KBR's website, that all you need is IFSAC but they said that wasn't the case. Thanks all

    Man bro that is crappy, My only guess would be to get in touch with a training officer on a military base that is DoD and ask him. Maybe some of the other guys on here can help you out more and give you better advice, but sorry to here that.

      Thanks. And yes, it is crappy. I looked on DOD's website and it says that I can transfer them. But it doesn't tell me how, or who to contact. Guess I'll just e-mail everyone there. Looks like ifsac ISN'T international after all.

        All you need is a state that grants reciprocity for national certs. LSU fire academy I know for a fact does both Proboard and IFSAC. There is likely a reciprocity application on their site. Alabama fire college might be another one. Also look at buckscounty.edu, they might also be good. If you go to proboard.org, you can look up the various states to see what certs they're good for. A good contact there is Amy Sturtevant.

          I found what I was looking for on the DOD website. Under the detailed explanation link, there is an e-mail to send your Certs to for transfering them to DOD.

                The DOD e-mailed me back and said they can't transfer them until I'm actually hired and become a federal employee. I called ProBoard and they said IFSAC and Proboard don't transfer. Looks like another let down. It's B.S. because KBR has several Firefighter positions posted, and when you click on them, almost everyone lists different cert requirements and accredited agencies.

                  What state you in now? Pro-Board told you wrong, unless they changed it because I received several IFSAC cert from one state and had them Pro-boarded in my home state, not sure if still being a member in my home state helped but I got them Pro-Boarded.
                  Thank you to the brave men and women of our great military, past, present and future for allowing my right to express my opinion and my opinion only, not representation of any company I may work for.

                      I just got off the phone with the guy at LSU, and I called several other states, as well as 5 executive members of the ProBoard, and they all told me absolutly not. They said they cannot print me a ProBoard Certificate based off of my IFSAC cert. The only way to do it, is go to my home state ProBoard proctor and "test out" for all the ProBoard certs I need. The only problem with that, is Missouri is not a ProBoard state.

                        Wow. I'm stunned.

                        Doesn't make any sense or seem the least bit fair.

                        Can't they hire you first and then transfer the certs over to DOD?

                            That is the standard process. DoD certifications are IFSAC certifications, as the DoD itself is IFSAC certified. It sounds like someone is confused here. Who are you talking too? Try calling Vannessa Henley in Houston. Private message me for the number.

                              It's taken care of now. The company hired me, then had the DOD transfer my certs. Every single place I called and e-mailed said they absolutly cannot do it.
