NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR CERTIFICATION IN ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGIES®
sponsored by the National Society of Professional Engineers

Press Release
NICET Hosts Fire Protection Advisory Group

The National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies
(NICET) announces that, with the help of experts in the Fire
Protection Industry, it is launching a review and update of the
certification programs for the fire protection area (Fire Alarm
Systems, Special Hazard Suppression Systems, Automatic Sprinkler
Layout and Design, and Inspection and Testing of Water-Based Systems).

On November 21, 2005 NICET hosted a daylong meeting at its
headquarters in Alexandria, VA, of 20 industry experts in fire
protection.  The meeting was devoted to a discussion of the workforce
certification needs for the fire protection industry, related to both
currently available and future NICET programs.  Meeting participants
were subject matter experts representing fire chiefs, fire marshals,
government, standards organizations, educators, insurance, allied
associations, as well as practitioners in myriad aspects of fire
protection (fire alarms, fire sprinklers, special hazards, fire stops,
for example). 

A strong force in many technical fields, NICET regularly brings
together industry leaders and subject matter experts to identify
industry needs and design and maintain technician certification
programs that promote technical knowledge and skills. The resulting
programs measure the competency of, and layout career paths for,
engineering technicians and technologists and supply industries and
employers with a more highly skilled workforce.  NICET promotes the
continuing professional development of its certified technicians and
technologists through a recertification process that emphasizes
updated skills and state-of-the-art knowledge. 

Since it’s founding in 1961, more than 113,000 technicians and
technologists have met NICET's rigorous certification criteria.  That
number is growing rapidly as more employers and local and state
governments rely on NICET certification to measure the qualifications
of their workforce. The certificate and wallet card issued by NICET
serve as a portable credential for certified technicians and
technologists who seek to maximize their skills and knowledge and
advance in their professions. By employing those workers who have
demonstrated their technical qualifications, employers can provide
their customers higher quality goods and services. And, ultimately,
the public enjoys a higher degree of safety and protection. 
NICET is a non-profit division of the National Society of Professional
Engineers. 

Please contact Dr. Louise Wehrle, Certification Program Developer,
NICET for further information;
ph. 703-548-1518, X125, 888-476-7238, X125, or e-mail lwehrle@nicet.org
