Florida Fire and Emergency Service Foundation
Certified Fire Protection Specialist (CFPS) Scholarship

The Florida Fire and Emergency Service Foundation is pleased to offer a new scholarship program for FFCA and FFMIA members in the fire prevention field that wish to achieve professional designation as a Certified Fire Protection Specialist (CFPS) with NFPA.

Through a private donation by Fire Marshal Anthony Apfelbeck and an additional commitment from Wayne Automatic Fire Sprinklers, the Foundation is able to extend a limited number of scholarships to individuals who wish to achieve a higher level of certification as a Certified Fire Protection Specialist (CFPS). The Foundation will reimburse the applicant for the $350.00 cost of the application and examination once the approved scholarship applicant has passed the CFPS exam and achieved certification.

The CFPS Board credential has been awarded to more than 2,000 professionals and is internationally recognized as a mark of achievement within the fire protection field. This group of certified professionals includes risk managers, loss control specialists, fire officers, fire marshals, fire inspectors, safety managers, fire protection consultants, designers, loss prevention professionals, building code officials, building inspectors and others who have responsibilities dealing with the application of fire safety, fire protection, prevention, and suppression technologies.
