Illinois Fire Service Institute


Challenge Exams

The Illinois Fire Service Institute offers Challenge Exams for several NFPA Professional Qualifications.

The Challenge Exam Program is designed for trained responders who have completed training to a given level, but do not currently hold an IFSAC or ProBoard national certification. These candidates prove competency and obtain national certification by completing the IFSI written exam and skills evaluations.

Upon successful completion of this objective process, national certification is awarded to the candidate in the form of a portable certificate that is recognized by state agencies and government contractors in the United States as well as internationally.
