The Fire Training Certification Program

In 2016, The Fire Training Certification Program (Fire TCP) was launched as a new way to ensure the highest professional standards in fire training.

Fire TCP certified courses have been evaluated by industry experts and meet the criteria for exceptional training.

Backed by the International Society of Fire Safety Instructors and powered by FirstForward, the Fire TCP unites training providers across the country under one seal of excellence.

What Is the Fire TCP Seal? How Does It Benefit Me?


The Fire TCP seal means your training meets or exceeds the highest standards for training in the fire industry. Therefore, the Fire TCP seal will allow your training to stand out from other training courses. Thus, giving training coordinators the confidence that your course is among the best available.

In addition, once your course is certified it becomes available on an online marketplace accessible to first responders from all over the nation. As a result, maximizing your reach in the fire and rescue industry.
