THE MOORE-WILSON SIGNALING REPORT 
--------------------------------- 

Question #1344
--------------
 
Are NFPA and AFAA seminars credited
toward NICET Certification and how would one get certified? Answer ------ The second question can be answered by visiting the NICET website (www.nicet.org) and downloading the necessary information, such as the detail manual and applications to begin the certification process. The answer to the first part of the question is yes. Seminars provided by NFPA and AFAA are accepted by NICET for the continuing education credits required to maintain one's certification once a person has been certified. -- Wayne Moore and Dean Wilson are senior engineers at Hughes Associates, Inc., a leading international provider of engineering and research services to the fire protection field, including fire hazard and risk assessment services, fire protection systems design and testing, code consulting, loss control, and forensic engineering services.
