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.
Accreditation ensures consistent training and testing of the firefighters and emergency responders who protect the citizens of the Commonwealth.
The Kentucky Fire Commission/State Fire Rescue Training is proud to have obtained certifications by both the IFSAC Certificate Assembly and the Degree Assembly.
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. An IFSAC accredited program indicates that course offerings, institutional support and qualified faculty are working together in completing their educational mission.
SFRT personnel are active in IFSAC Board and Committees as well as serving as site team members for site visits in other states.
