Rhode Island Fire Education And Training Coordinating Board

The Fire Education and Training Coordinating Board was established pursuant to RIGL § 23-28.2-23 for the purpose of developing, monitoring and evaluating training programs for fire fighters and fire officers. The Board consists of thirteen gubernatorial appointees, who serve a three year term, and are comprised of chiefs from paid, call and volunteer fire departments, as well as representatives from various associations and state agencies.

The Board is tasked with developing certification programs that conform to National Fire Protection Association standards with the goal of providing up to date training and continuing education. In addition, the Board is responsible for approving instructors for these programs and ensuring the quality of instruction. These courses are offered through the Rhode Island Fire Academy and at various locations throughout the state
