|Publication Date:||31 August 2018|
This Manual outlines the DoD Fire and Emergency Services Certification Program. It is not the intent of this Manual to conflict with, be used instead of, or supersede other DoD training Directives or Office of Personnel Management or DoD qualification standards. Report any conflicts to the Headquarters Air Force Civil Engineer Support Agency Fire and Emergency Services Division (HQ AFCESA/CEXF), hereafter referred to as the "Administration Center," 139 Barnes Drive Suite 1, Tyndall Air Force Base (AFB), FL 32403-5319 according to Reference (a).
The purpose of this program is to enhance the training process, improve employee performance reliability, and strengthen the professionalism of all DoD Fire and Emergency Services personnel. The program effectively measures the competence of DoD Fire and Emergency Services personnel and provides a quality control element for the training process. These measurements and quality control elements shall be accomplished through the administration of standardized written or computer-based tests and performance evaluations. This comprehensive program uses the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) professional qualifications standards. The Administration Center shall develop standards when NFPA standards do not exist
