    The National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications (Pro Board) was founded solely to enhance the job performance and credibility of those individuals within the fire service and allied professions.  The Pro Board is incorporated as a non-profit organization and all funds received through the National Registry and certificate distribution are reinvested back into the program.  A Board of Directors administers the system and consists of one member from the International Association of Arson Investigators, Inc. (IAAI), the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), the National Association of State Fire Marshals (NASFM), the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the North American Fire Training Directors (NAFTD), one member At-Large and the Chair of the Pro Board Advisory Committee. The Chair of the Committee on Accreditation serves as a non-voting, ex-officio, member on the Board.  The Board of Director’s primary responsibility is to set policy for the system and ensure fiscal stability for continued operation.
