  • NAFI test

    Hi, I am about to take the NAFI test. I was wondering if anyone else could give me input on how hard the test is.

    CFEI is 921 based

    I haven't taken the test but there is a discussion on another forum which might interest you.

    Here is a quote: "…CFEI test was easier for me. It is 921 based."

    CFI v. CFEI

    Here is a link to NAFI's CFEI webpage which gives testing information, dates and places.

      The CFEI Exam is straight out of NFPA 921 and maby a few questions out of NFPA 1033, Professional Qualifications for Fire Investigators. The exam makes your brain work, but if you know your updated 921 you should not have a problem. The questions are straight foward and not meant to fool the person taking the exam.

      Best of luck!

          How did you do on your CFEI Exam?


          • #6
            I took the course and exam in Toronto, Canada the end of Oct. The instructor was Ron Hopkins from the East Kentucky University, an exellent if not one of the best instructors in the fire service. He could give a 2 hr. lecture on buttoning up your shirt and have you sitting on the edge of your seat hanging on to every word. The course itself was very intense and very well put together, the exam was 100 mutiple guess questions and I took 1 hr. 55 min. to complete. It was not difficult but you had to read each question carefully.. The course was put on by Fire Facts of Toronto, and would recommend it to anyone thinking about going into investigations. Ron also teaches the CVFI course at the University of Kentucky and recently talked to a PI that took the course and was impressed. By the way I did pass the course with a respectable score.

              If you don't mind. Since I am an EKU Grad and CFEI and CFII. Ron teaches the CFVI every fall at Eastern Kentucky University. If you wish you can attend the annual NAFI Seminar at EKU every spring. I am sure Ron will love to hear you speak highly of him.

              If you like you can see the information about this years NAFI Seminar at EKU. http://www.fireandsafety.eku.edu/SEM-98/98open2.htm

              But you can also go to www.fireandsafety.eku.edu and go to seminars. Here you will find other seminars and trainings they do.

              You do need to know your NFPA 921. But if you can attend the seminar in March and read your 921 book you will be in great shape.

                I agree, Ron is the best in the business. I spent 4 years at EKU under his wing and learned a lot. He's definitely a great contact to have or at least network with.

                LA Capt, remember this one?

                  Yup i remember that one. Just many of Ron's words of wisdom.

                  How the heck have you been.

                    Haliganchick, right you are about that saying, but for the time we were in Toronto I believe it was white wine that came in bottles.

                      MacInnis, have we met before? When were you at EKU?

                      LACAPT, right on!

                        Unless i am thinking of another person from Ar.

                        I start at EKU in 1997 and just finished this past December. I took NAFI test in March of last year.

                        Did you CO-Op at Mad Co.
