Illinois Fire Service Institute


Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications (The ProBoard)

IFSI offers ProBoard certificates for all IFSI courses that are accredited by the National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications. The certificates are nationally recognized and allow for standardization of responder training across the country; simply put, the ProBoard is the fire fighting equivalent of the National Registry for EMTs and Paramedics.

There are multiple entities that are accredited by ProBoard - for more information on the ProBoard please visit or watch their informational video at

IFSI is accredited for various levels, to view a complete list, click on the following link:

For these various courses, the ProBoard Seal and number will be on the downloadable IFSI certificate of completion when it becomes available following the class - no additional forms or payment is necessary. IFSI is paying the certificate fee on the student's behalf.

At this time IFSI is not offering challenge exams, to receive a ProBoard certificate one must complete the corresponding IFSI course.

Please contact Brian Brauer with any questions related to ProBoard.
