Fireguard Courses

Program's Description

Most office buildings and construction sites are making the fireguard license a mandatory certification to have. To become a fireguard, you must obtain a fireguard license/certificate of fitness from the NYFD. To obtain such a license, a security guard must successfully pass the fitness examination’s fire department certificate.
