Office of the State Fire Marshal has informed CALSAFE the Certification testing has been re-established with Pearson VUE.

Pearson Vue had suspended testing, then severely modified testing. The OSFM has been assured their testing has ramped up and they will be able to accommodate the OSFM Testing.

For questions please visit:
The procedures of the OSFM are the same as they were prior to the COVID shutdown.
NOTE: The OSFM did re-establish testing in the interim at their office to try to keep the testing moving within the COVID Guidelines, that service has been moved to Person Vue now that they can accommodate.
CALSAFE will continue to keep you updated as new news and procedures are communicated.
