    I am in the process of getting my FireFighter 1 and 2 certification, My question is what is FireFighter 3,4,and 5,and what are the requirements for these certifications?

    How About the rest of the Story?.......

    First, and most important, what state are you in??? And are you talking about State or National Pro Board certification? Maryland (where I am) and National Pro Board doesn't go above F/F 2. I would urge everyone to get National Pro Board Certification for any classes that you take. Stay safe....

        There is no general national certification. IFSAC or Pro-Board are close, but they are not a national system. Many states have adopted them and accept their certs as reciprocal. There are a great many states with their own certification system that is not recognized or recognizes other systems. I am not sure what system Kansas follows, but if at all possible get a pro-board cert. They cross over to more states and organizations.

        Never heard of firefighter3, 4, and 5. Must be a Kansas thing. In that case I would doubt it is Pro-Board accredited.

          OK, Here Goes........

          The National Board on Fire Sevice Professional Qualifications, usually referred to as the National Pro Board, Issues certificates for documented training in accordance with NFPA training standards. The most common are Firefighter I & II, Fire Instructor I, II, III, & IV, Fire OFFICER I, II, III, & IV as well as Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator aka FADO, Several levels each in HazMat, Wildland, Airport, Investigations, Inspections, and so on. I currently hold eleven Certificates, including Fire Instructor III and Fire Officer IV. It doesn't mean anything that I got all this as a Volunteer, as the system is open to anyone. Stay Safe....
