NFPA 1033: Professional Qualifications for Fire Investigator

Abstract: The purpose of this standard is to specify in terms of minimum job performance requirements the minimum standards required for service as a fire investigator in both the private and public sectors. It is not the intent of this standard to restrict any jurisdiction from exceeding these minimum requirements. Job performance requirements describe the performance required for a specific job. The complete list of requirements for each duty describes the tasks an individual must be able to perform in order to successfully carry out that duty; however, they are not intended to measure a level of knowledge. Together, the duties and job performance requirements define the parameters of the job of fire investigator.

Fire investigation technology and practices are changing rapidly. It is essential for an investigator's performance and knowledge to remain current. It is recommended that investigators be familiar with the technical information and procedural guidance presented in materials such as NFPA 921, Guide for Fire and Explosion Investigations.
