The ProBoard is an international accreditation system for fire service organizations. You can use this credential to verify as a first responder firefighter. This article explains how to use your ProBoard certificate and what to do if you can’t get verified.
Before you verify
If your fire department does not send their certifications to the ProBoard, your verification attempt may be unsuccessful. In that case, use other acceptable documents to verify your first responder status.
