Closed Certification Examination Requests

The Certification Group accepts requests for closed certification examinations. These requests can come from a fire department or training district and must be requested in writing on formal letterhead.

Letters of request should include the examination type, desired date(s), potential location, and number of candidates anticipated. Requests are reviewed and approved on a first come, first serve basis.

We reserve the right to change, add candidates, and/or combine approved dates, locations, and times based on continuing numbers of applicants.

Requests must be received by the Certification Group at least 60 days prior to any anticipated examination date to be considered. In addition to securing facilities, budgetary considerations and availability of personnel must be reviewed prior to granting any requests.

Finally, as the Council has a 21 business day deadline for candidate application submission, time is required for candidates to be notified and respond appropriately.
