    Not likely... How else would you propose to gain professional certification other than by attending a certified program?

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

      Sorry, i guess i should have been more specific...

      other than attending a 12 week academy, is there a way to get Firefighter I (NFPA 1001) IFSAC or Pro Board certification?

      ...like can i take one class at a time or is the only way to get this cert in a 12 week academy combined with other certs? I am active duty Navy and i am trying to get FF1 and FF2 IFSAC or Pro Board certs before my enlistment expires

      thanks for your help

        Check with your local fire training agency, they may have weekend programs or other more flexible schedules intended primarily to accomodate volunteers.

          Depending on your state, FF1 and FF2 may be available through classes given at local volunteer and combination departments by certified teachers. However, some departments may only offer a couple of courses a year and may not go all the way through the entire FF1 or 2. You may have to travel a ways to get to them also.
