Fire Official Exam Schedules, Applications, Study Materials, and Testing Policies


The Office of Education and Data Management (OEDM) administers all aspects of the credentialing exams for the Office of State Fire Marshal, including the written challenge exams offered each quarter (Quarterly exams), and the practical Fire Investigator exams offered biannually.

Our office works with the State Fire Marshal to review challenge exam applications. Once your exam application is approved, we will register you for the next quarterly exam and send a confirmation letter and directions. If your application is denied, you will be notified in writing of the decision.
