Fire Marshal utilizes NFPA 1037 Standard on Fire Marshal Professional Qualifications to provide the qualifications for State Fire Training’s Fire Marshal certification. These qualifications are documented in the Fire Marshal Certification Training Standards (CTS). State Fire Training coordinated the development of the CTS guide, certification and associated curriculum. The Statewide Training and Education Advisory Committee (STEAC) and the State Board of Fire Services (SBFS) recommended these standards and qualifications for adoption by the Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM).
