NFCA Fireproofing Education and Examinations
for NFCA Accredited Contractor (CAP) / UL Qualified SFRM DRI's and Fireproofing Inspectors
NFCA Fireproofing Education and Exams are created for fireproofing industry participants to prove thier fireproofing knowledge - based study of the NFCA Handbook of Accepted Fireproofing Knowledge.
Contractor Personnel take the education and exams to become NFCA Contractor Accreditation Program (CAP) DRI's. Fireproofing Contractors are required to be NFCA CAP Accredited before moving on to the UL Qualified SFRM Contractor Program (ULQSFRM) program. A NFCA CAP DRI can become a UL DRI once the company also becomes UL Qualified.
Special Inspection Agency personnel need to prove fireproofing competency to the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), as required by the International Building Code (IBC) - or just to set themselves apart from other competitors. Fireproofing inspectors can gain recognition through taking and passing the NFCA SFRM and IFRM Fireproofing Exams - based on the NFCA Handbook of Accepted Fireproofing Knowledge.
