Looking to submit your classes/hours to the International Code Council for continuing education credit?
The Tennessee Fire Safety Inspectors Association is an ICC Preferred Provider which means you not only obtain credit towards renewing your Tennessee Code Inspector certification but you can also use the hours towards the three-year recertification cycle. Effective July 2016, ICC requires that 50% of CEUs applied to a certificate renewal must be obtained through a Preferred Provider. As as example, if you have Fire Inspector I certification through ICC, you must obtain 15 hours or 1.5 CEU over the course of three years. At least 8 of the 15 hours (0.8) must be from a Preferred Provider.
The annual education conference provides, on average, 18 hours or 1.8 CEU. As TFSIA is a Preferred Provider, this means you can easily meet not only your ICC renewal but also exceed the 0.8 CE credits required for a single certification!
