We administer International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC) and Pro Board-accredited testing and certification for municipal and industrial fire rescue services in Alberta.
Employers decide what training and qualifications are needed to ensure the safety and competence of their employees. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) certification of fire service members is not required by the provincial government.
For more information on firefighter training and qualifications in Alberta, see ALIS’s Firefighter Career Profile or Wildland Firefighter Career Profile.

- 1001 Firefighter Levels I & II
- 1033 Fire Investigator Levels I
- 1002 Driver/Operator, Pump Operator and Aerial Operator
