Fire Investigator training is very difficult to both locate and successfully complete. 

The Texas Commission on Fire Protection recommends a curriculum of 200 hours in order to be eligible to take the state examination for certification.  Upon successful completion of our Fire Investigator program and the state examination, the student will be eligible for not only receipt of certification in the State of Texas as a Basic Fire Investigator, but also eligible for an IFSAC seal as Fire Investigator.  Students do not need the Navigate 2 Access for this course.  Click on the textbook or here to go to the Jones and Bartlett website to order.

The Awareness level knowledge of HazMat is also required in this course.  We suggest getting the IFSTA 5th ed Hazardous Materials for First Responders especially if you do not have a fire Background.
