Pro Board (NPQS)

The National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications (Pro Board) is an internationally recognized organization that accredits agencies to certify emergency responders to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Professional Qualification standards. As an accredited agency, TEEX must complete a self-assessment and receive a site visit every five years by the Pro Board to maintain this accreditation.

Pro Board Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Submit your Pro Board Certificate to Texas Commission on Fire Protection for certification.

This policy means students, who qualify, will only be required to take one exam instead of two. Students that go the Pro Board route will not have to pay TCFP an additional $85, however they will still be required to pay the state certification fee. Not all Pro Board Certifications apply, check if yours qualifies for this opportunity.
