What you'll learn in this career training:

Commercial high-rises, hotels, and hospitals require certified personnel as mandated by New York City Local Laws, Rules of the City of New York Fire Department and the NYC Fire Code. This FDNY accredited course for Fire Safety Directors is designed to prepare candidates to participate in the written and on-site FSD Certificate of Fitness Examinations. The 20-hour course examines every aspect of fire protection management in high-rise structures through intense review of aspects of Local Law #5 of 1973 and NYC Fire Code 2014.  Special emphasis will be placed on the Fire Code Chapter 4-Emergency Planning and Preparedness, and Chapter 9- Fire Protection Systems. Other course topics include Firematics, FSD duties and responsibilities, record keeping and building systems.

Training Requirements for Fire Safety Director Training

As of 2017, the F-85 Certificate of Fitness (after meeting additional requirements, specified in the Notice of Examination) replaces the F-25/F-58 Fire Safety Director Certificates of Fitness(C of F).

Candidates for the New York City Fire Department’s (FDNY) Fire Safety Director (FSD) F-85 Certificate of Fitness (FSD w/Active Shooter) are required to complete both the FSD and Active Shooter and Medical Emergency Preparedness (ASMEP) courses prior to applying to take the computerized FSD C of F exam.

Applicants have 1 year from the date of completing the FSD course to apply to take computerized, written FSD exam with the FDNY. If they do not apply within a year they are required to retake the entire course. For additional information visit the FDNY  website.

Additionally, all current F-25/F-58 holders must comply with the new requirements and successfully complete the Active Shooter and Medical Emergency Preparedness course by September 4, 2017, or the date of expiration of their existing C of F, as required by new Fire Rule (3 RCNY §113).

NEW – Upcoming FDNY Transition Deadlines:

By September 3, 2018, or the date of expiration of existing C of F, all current and active FSD will also be required to have successfully completed the 7-hour Emergency Action Plan (EAP) training course.

By March 1, 2019, or the date of expiration of existing C of F, all current and active F-85 must have registered and received a passing grade on the computerized EAP C of F examination to receive their Temporary Fire Life Safety Director C of F (T-89). The T-89 will be converted to the F-89 when the candidate successfully passes the EAP on-site practical examination.
