    Default inspector

    I have been looking for a school that can certify me to become a fire inspector. I live in NC but don't really care where I end up. Does anyone know how long it takes to get certified to the point were you could actually get a job? Any help would be appreciated.

    Talk to the insurance companies. They need a lot of arson investigators and they should know where you can get certified. There might be a good bit of competition for the job though. Good luck. The class is hard.

    In Montgomery county (Md) there is a college that offers an arson investigation certificate. I am close friends with the person in charge of the program. She is always willing to help anyone who wants training!

    Are you interested in being a fire INSPECTOR or a fire INVESTIGATOR? There's a world of difference.

    NFPA offers inspector certification for about $300 last I checked, which was about three years ago. States may have their own certification standards, but usually accept NFPA by reciprocity.

    Can't help you in the investigator department.
