The International Board for Certification of Safety Managers, also known as BCHCM, initially developed the FSM credential (Fire Safety Manager) as an endorsement designation to the Certified Healthcare Safety Professional (CHSP) and Certified Healthcare Emergency Professional (CHEP) credentials. In 2018 after surveying FSM holders, the decision was made to make the FSM a stand-alone certification. As a result, the CHFSP certification, formerly known as the Fire Safety Management (FSM) credential, was established to improve healthcare fire and life safety efforts.
The CHFSP exam was developed by a Beta Team of practicing healthcare fire safety professionals. The exam content is broad and covers a variety fire safety management and compliance topics; content comes from compliance standards, accreditation requirements, and voluntary standards/codes published by NFPA and other consensus standards organizations, it does not contain questions requiring math or engineering calculations.
The exam contains a least 110 -125 multiple choice questions. The exam is challenging but does not contain questions requiring math or engineering calculations. The exam content has been developed with the assistance of practicing healthcare fire safety professionals and subject matter experts.
Registration is coming soon.
The CHFSP is appropriate for current CHSP, CHEP, and CHFM certification holders. CHFSP Candidates not holding the CHSP or CHEP must meet the education and relevant experience requirements necessary for the credential.
