WV Public Service Training is proud to offer IFSAC certification. International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC) provides certification to individuals who pass examinations based on National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) fire service professional qualifications. IFSAC was founded to ensure the quality and continuation of a national accreditation system for fire service certification programs. After an extensive application process and a site visit by IFSAC officials the West Virginia Department of Education received accreditation from IFSAC for the six Public Service Training programs around the state.
