Reciprocity and Challenge Testing
Fire service certification in Arizona is voluntary. There are no state regulations requiring fire service personnel to become certified. AzCFSE recognizes the validity of certifications with IFSAC seals and other State certifications that demonstrate that all applicable NFPA standards were followed. Departments may choose to make certification or Arizona certification mandatory for their firefighters. Candidates for Arizona certification are tested for competency using the applicable NFPA standard(s).
