Accreditation and Standards:
The Alabama Fire College and Firefighters’ Personnel Standards Commission is accredited by the National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications (ProBoard) and the International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC). Accreditation serves as an affirmation that the certification courses of the Alabama Fire College meet the standards of excellence as defined by the national accrediting body. It is a voluntary process, and only the most capable agencies apply for consideration. When a fire training agency applies for the certification seal of approval, these agencies study the policies, procedures and processes of certification testing and evaluation to insure compliance with the current NFPA standards. The Alabama Fire College has been ProBoard accredited since 1983. In November 2005, AFC sought and was successful in obtaining accreditation by IFSAC. 

The Alabama Fire College is not an academic degree granting institution. The Alabama Fire College is accredited through two national accrediting associations (ProBoard and IFSAC) to grant non-academic, training certifications. Please refer to the Certification Manual for more information regarding specific policies.
