DOI State Fire Marshal
The recertification exercise consists of 25 True or False questions. These questions will be randomly selected
from a bank of over 200 questions based on the 2012 Edition of the International Fire Code and IDAPA Rule 18.01.50.
Your Fire Code Official log in number is required to access the recertification exercise. Please contact your chief
or the Idaho State Fire Marshal’s office to obtain your number.
You must indicate your answer of true or false and input the code section that justifies your response. When the answer
to a question includes a subtitled item or an exception, just list the primary code section as your answer.
If you include “exception” or “item” in your code answer, the system will score it as an incorrect response.
When you log in, a page will appear with links to 25 questions. You will have to click on each button to view the
question. Once the question has been answered and you click submit, the system will automatically save your answer.
This was designed for your convenience in case of an emergency call. If you view the questions and don’t answer them,
the system may reassign different questions when you log in again.
Once you’ve successfully passed the exercise, print the page with your results, sign it and attach it to your
application. Turn your application with your results to your fire chief or fire marshal and they will submit the
documents to our office. You and your chief/fire marshal must sign the application before it can be processed.
If you did not pass the recertification exercise, you will have to wait 24-hours to try again.
Once your application has been processed, your 2015 Fire Code Official card will be mailed to your fire chief or fire marshal.
