With the ever-changing demands of technology today, it is more important than ever that properly trained and skilled technicians are available. IMSA Certifications indicate individuals have met prerequisite qualifications and passed an examination -- from an impartial, nationally-recognized association -- to determine they are qualified to perform specific technical tasks. Certification also bestows a sense of achievement upon the certified individual since it reflects professional advancement in a chosen field, and can also provide an entry into many job assignments that otherwise would be difficult to obtain, since employers recognize certification as an indication of the individual's ability to do specific job tasks without the need for on-the-job training.
IMSA, working closely with the IMSA Educational Foundation, began certification of individuals involved with various public safety activities in 1982. IMSA has issued over 100,000 certificates in public safety. IMSA is globally recognized as the leader in public safety certifications. (IMSA membership is not a requirement to obtain certification.)
