Training Requirements

Training is essential to growing within the industry.  Good training can provide an increased knowledge and improved job performance.  ACE places a high value on training and requires training for certification and recertification.  

ACE does not require training from a specific training provider or specific training program.  We do partner with several training organizations and provide testing opportunities following a training courses.    

Training Requirements for Certification

Training must be specific to Inspection, Testing or Maintenance (ITM) of Water-based Fire Protection Systems or NFPA 25. For those testing for Level II or higher, a maximum of eight (8) training hours can be applied for training taken on other training topics such as backflow certifications, alarms, OSHA, organizational internal training, etc. 

Water-based Inspector Level I – 16 hours of training
Water-based Inspector Level II – 32 hours of training
Recertification training requirement for both Level I and Level II – 16 hours of industry related continuing education

Training Documentation

ACE recognizes industry training and continuing education credits towards certification or recertification.  Proof of completion is required for all training applied to the prerequisites for certification or recertification.  ACE reserves the right to request the course description and objectives for training submitted.

1 Contact Hour = 1 Training Credit
