Welcome to the Accredited Firefighter Certification website of the Kentucky Fire Commission.
We sincerely hope that you find this site useful and that your browsing of the site is one of ease and proves to be informative.
The KY Fire Commission is accredited by the International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC) and was originally accredited by IFSAC in July of 1998. IFSAC is a world-wide organization including 114 member entities including Kentucky and 40 other states as well as 10 Canadian provinces, the Republic of South Africa, Egypt, Germany, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the Sultanate of Oman, the United Kingdom, the Canadian Armed Forces, and the United States Department of Defense.
Following an on-site visit, three IFSAC member representatives in October 2014, the IFSAC Certificate Assembly Board of Governors re-accredited the Kentucky Fire Commission on April 17, 2015. The next site visit will occur at or near July 2018.
THE ACCREDITED CERTIFICATION OFFICE OF THE KENTUCKY FIRE COMMISSION IS LOCATED IN THE FIRE COMMISSION/SFRT AREA 9 OFFICES:

Written exams are offered each month, in Lexington at the Kentucky Fire Commission Central Office, 118 James Court. Typically, they are on the third Monday of each month, but some months do not follow that general schedule due to conflicts beyond our control. December testing is limited due to KCTCS holiday schedules.
Please go to http://www.kyffcert.com/id33.html to find a listing of dates or to register for an exam.
