Course Objectives
Course Overview:
This 2½ day training module will provide the fire/arson investigator with the practical and technical
skills necessary to demonstrate compliance with the job performance requirements listed in NFPA®
1033 Standard Professional Qualifications for Fire Investigators.
This training module will provide both classroom and hands-on training with practical exercises on
how to comply with the JPR’s by actually being given the task, tools, and measurable outcomes to
demonstrate the ability to successfully complete the JPR’s. The documentation will be two-fold. You
will have a completed check off sheet certifying you completed the JPR’s, and photographic documentation of yourself completing each of the JPR's.
Upon Successful Completion:
Attendees will have been provided the necessary skills and knowledge to show compliance with the
job performance requirements as listed in NFPA® 1033:
NFPA® 1033 states, 1.1* Scope. This standard identifies the minimum job performance
requirements (JPR's) for fire investigators.
1.2* Purpose. The purpose of this standard shall be to specify the minimum job performance
requirements for serving as a fire investigator in both the private and public sectors.
1.2.2 Job performance requirements for each duty are the tasks an individual must be able to
perform in order to successfully carry out that duty; however, they are not intended to measure a level of knowledge. Together, the duties and job performance requirements define the
parameters of the job of a fire investigator.
4.1.1* The fire investigator shall meet the job performance requirements defined in Sections
4.2 through 4.7
The question is, if or when you are asked, can you show the court, attorney, judge, or whomever is asking the question, do you meet the job performance requirements as listed in
NFPA®1033. What will your answer be?
If your answer is yes, then you are asked, please provide us with that documentation. How
will you provide the documentation to properly satisfy the court that you have met and can
perform each JPR to their satisfaction?
This class will provide you with the check sheets and photographic evidence that each
attendee was able to complete the JPR’s as listed in the document.
