The International Code Council is looking to new certifications. Based on responses to a previous survey they conducted to determine need, the International Code Council (ICC) is developing the following commercial fire sprinkler and commercial fire alarm certification examinations:
- Commercial Fire Sprinkler Inspector
- Commercial Fire Sprinkler Plan Examiner
- Existing Commercial Fire Sprinkler System Inspector
- Commercial Fire Alarm Inspector
- Commercial Fire Alarm Plan Examiner I
- Commercial Fire Alarm Plan Examiner II
ICC examinations are developed using a Job Analysis approach, which focuses on analyzing a profession to determine the observable job behaviors (“tasks”) performed. The data collected during the Job Analysis is used to create a list of discrete job tasks, their relative importance to the profession, and linkage to knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs).
The job task statements were developed by the Fire Sprinkler Examination Development Committee (EDC) or the Commercial Fire Alarm Examination Development Committee (EDC), both working in conjunction with the Fire Services Membership Council (FSMC).
During each survey, you will be asked to rank each task by how frequently you perform this task and how important the task is in the performance of your current job. Each survey should take approximately 30 minutes of your time. Your completion of both surveys in appreciated and will help shape the certification examinations.
