Register Now!

Our 2022 Advanced Fire Investigation Training Program explores the relationship between the requirements of NFPA 1033 and the science of NFPA 921. For more than 30 years, NAFI has been there since day one at the forefront of the development of NFPA 921. Look to NAFI for superior training and technical resources.

The Standard for Professional Qualifications for Fire Investigators, NFPA 1033, mandates that an investigator have up-to-date training in fire investigation. This Advanced Fire Investigation Training Program provides this training and uses NFPA 921 as its knowledge base. This program features advanced lectures in Applied Fire Dynamics, Lithium-ion Batteries, Legal Aspects of Fire Investigation, Electrical, and many others. Lectures are dynamic, compelling, and USEFUL. Students are presented a mix of both advanced theory and its practical applications.
