South Carolina Fire Academy

Protect. Prevent. Train. Respond.


The SC Fire Academy offers evaluation of previous certifications and training from other accredited state or training entities. It is the policy of the South Caroline Fire Academy to offer reciprocity or equivalency for occupational level certifications issued by proper agencies. The SCFA does not offer equivalency for individual courses except those listed due to these being prerequisites for certification.

To apply for credit, complete the Application for Equivalency or Reciprocity. The application must be signed by your fire chief or designee.

Please submit the signed application and copies of your certifications (or transcripts) to: SCFA Accreditation & Certification, 141 Monticello Trail, Columbia, SC 29203 or email
