What is the Pro Board?
The National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications (Pro Board) has accredited TEEX to more than 40 certification levels. Pro Board is an internationally recognized professional organization that represents the fire service and related field of emergency response. Agencies that achieve Pro Board accreditation are recognized as having met the rigors of review by an independent organization. When students attend a TEEX course leading to certification, they are trained and tested based on NFPA standards. Upon successful completion of the course, written exam, and skills exam, students receive a certificate that contains the TEEX logo and the Pro Board seal, which indicates a quality standard in both training and testing. Students are then placed on the Pro Board National Registry.
