Fire Cause Determination
This course, developed by the Division of Fire Safety, was updated in 2011 to meet the needs of individuals not currently certified at Fire Fighter I & II, and who are seeking to attend a division delivered Fire Investigator Course. This eight-hour course educates the student in fire cause indicators, fire scene security, fire scene investigation, accidental causes and incendiary causes. Approved instructors must have attended the train-the-trainer which was delivered at the 2011 PFFIA Conference in Springfield or hold current certifications at Fire Service Instructor I or higher and Fire Investigator. Preregistration is required and students completing the course will receive certificates from the Division of Fire Safety.
