In September 2013 the IFSAC Board of Governors voted to approve accreditation of the Arizona Center for Fire Service Excellence for four levels: Hazardous Materials Awareness, Hazardous Materials Operations, Firefighter I, and Firefighter II. Thanks to everyone who participated as a Subject Matter Expert, Proctor, member of the Advisory Council, part of the Self-Study group, or in any other way to help make this happen. We have updated our Certificate Request Form for the people who received AZCFSE Firefighter certifications between Spring 2010 and Spring 2013.

The Arizona Center for Fire Service Excellence (AZCFSE) was established in 2010 with the support of the Arizona Fire Services Institute (AFSI), a consensus body representing Arizona's fire services with representation from the Arizona Fire Chiefs Association, Professional Firefighters of Arizona, Arizona Fire District Association, Volunteer Firefighters of Arizona and Metro Fire Chiefs.
Day-to-day management of AZCFSE is provide by the Executive Board of the Arizona State Fire Training Committee (AZSFTC), a 501c3 not-for-profit Arizona corporation. AZCFSE staff are responsible for the day-to-day administration of the fire service training and certification processes for the state. Training and certification processes are presented by an instructor cadre from throughout the state. AZCFSE works closely with all stakeholder groups from throughout the state in establishing training programs and certification processes.
The State Training Committee, a volunteer group of dedicated fire service professionals, is responsible for coordinating and managing the annual State Fire School presented each year in September in Mesa.
