CPSE Chief Fire Officer Designation

The OSFM is excited about a cooperative agreement with the Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE). A graduate of the OSFM's Chief Fire Officer Program, with full certification, can now gain the Chief Fire Officer (CFO) designation from the CPSE's Commission on Professional Credentialing. If you are a graduate from the OSFM program from 2012 to June 1st, 2020, you have until December 31st, 2020 to complete and turn in the application for CFO Designation. The current class and future OSFM classes will also be eligible to apply, only when receiving full certification from the program. Completing this process allows you to join more than 1400 Chief Fire Officers designees world-wide and these professional designations are international and recognized as the minimum standards for fire chiefs.
