The International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC) is a peer driven, self governing system that accredits both public fire service certification programs and higher education fire-related degree programs.
The IFSAC Certificate Assembly provides accreditation to entities that certify the competency of and issue certificates to individuals who pass examinations based on the National Fire Protection Association fire service professional qualifications and other standards approved by the Assembly.
The IFSAC Degree Assembly accredits fire science or related academic programs at colleges and universities. Accreditation is available for both two-year associate degree programs and four-year bachelor degree programs. An IFSAC accredited program indicates that course offerings, institutional support, and qualified faculty are working together in completing their educational mission.
