This program defines competencies, provides education and recognizes commitment and scope of practice among fire and life safety professionals in Oregon. The competency recognition program is a joint effort between the Office of State Fire Marshal and the Oregon Fire Marshals Association. The competency recognition program focuses on fire and life safety training and technical certifications. These certifications include Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) Fire Inspector Task Books, which are based on the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) 1031 Professional Standards for Fire Inspectors, as well as International Code Council (ICC) certifications. There are currently four levels of competency recognition certificates available for fire service personnel responsible for enforcing the Fire Code in Oregon.
Oregon Administrative Rule Chapter 837.039.0210 establishes a standardization of certification and training requirements for fire officials responsible for administration enforcement of the fire code.
