The TCFP Basic Fire Inspector Course is two courses in one. This course is about 156 clock hours. It consists of Fire Inspector I, and Fire Inspector II. As a Fire Inspector I you are responsible for conducting basic fire inspections and applies codes and standards. Fire Inspector II you are responsible for conducting most types of inspections and you interpret applicable codes and standards. Both of these sections put together the TCFP Fire Inspector. The Course overall consists of a basic review of Fire Academy academics, from Building Construction to Hazardous Materials. You will recognize a lot of the information but at the same time you will be introduced to these categories from a Fire Inspector’s view.
This course is full of information and when you complete this course it will give you a broader perspective of the fire service you will see the fire service in a different view.
*REGARDING PLANS EXAMINER: In 2019 the TCFP separated Basic Fire Inspector (FI) certification from Plans Examiner (PE). Where as prior to 2019 Basic Fire Inspector consisted of FI 1, FI 2, and PE, PE is now a separate course. FI TCFP certification is a prerequisite for PE certification as of 2019.
