Professional certification says a lot about a company and an individual.  It means you've invested the time to better yourself.  That you care about the work you do.  And that you've raised the bar for everyone in the industry.  Certification isn't an easy process; the programs are run by independent, third-parties.  You can't charm your way in or curry favor with sponsorships; you have to prove yourself.  Certification means something in our industry and is used as a benchmark of the people who work in life safety.

In addition to all of the individual licenses held by our employees in their particular disciplines, we have employees with certifications that range from NICET (National Institute for Certification of Engineering Technologists) and NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), district and branch offices certified by UL (Underwriters Laboratories), as well as SAFETY Act certification from U.S. Department of Homeland Security for SimplexGrinnell as a company.
