The International Society of Fire Service Instructors has embarked on an ambitious credentialing program designed to provide instructors a direct pathway to develop and advance as professional educators and will bridge the gap between fire service professional development, the professional credentialing of instructors, and the accreditation of emerging training curriculum and eLearning platforms and programs.
Candidates submit a portfolio representing their combination of life experience, education, and training, to be reviewed by a council of esteemed fire service and education professionals. This council is empowered by the ISFSI Board of Directors to award the appropriate professional credentials based on the determined guidelines and criteria. A credential is valid for three (3) years at which time the credentialed instructor must renew their certification.
