Welcome to NIFAST
The National Institute of Fire and Safety Training

  NIFAST is a national company comprised of certified fire safety professionals, founded and operated by fire safety industry leaders. Organized to dramatically improve fire safety standards and results, NIFAST is currently implementing the following four core competency areas and programs:

NIFAST Home Inspectors Program

Our active membership of certified inspectors provide fire safety inspections in the residential and commercial space. These inspections are bridging the gap between current regulatory code, and what “should” be included in an inspection in order to make dwellings truly fire safe.

NIFAST Home Occupancy Program

At the core of our program is the education and knowledge that NIFAST believes is the key to safer lives: our home occupancy training program. This program is intended to train and test all home occupants on fire safety and awareness, and bring a higher level of understanding of what is involved in order to prevent, and more importantly, survive a fire.

NIFAST for Campus Living

One of the intended purposes on which NIFAST was founded, was to help educate and train college students in both on and off-campus fire prevention situations. Our training and curriculum in the campus environment allows us to educate an entire student populous on fire safety, or smaller groups most affected by off-campus fires (apartment tenants, Panhellenic / Greek organizations, etc…)

NIFAST Training and Testing

Our online training and testing program is the easiest way to become NIFAST certified. We also offer on-site fire safety training, and customized training course materials to enhance or replace your organization's existing fire training. All NIFAST training courses are OSHA compliant and conform to NIFAST's standards and guidelines.
