The American Subcontractors Association (ASA), Alexandria, Va., recently endorsed the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies’ (NICET) Fire Protection Certification program. The certification program is designed to certify technicians in the fire protection fields of fire alarm systems, automatic sprinkler system layout, special hazards suppression systems, and inspection and testing of water-based systems.

“NICET certification affirms technician’s professional stature while allowing employees to measure workers’ qualification and identify their training needs,” says Paul Stockman, NICET fire protection specialist.
