Inspection companies have been analyzing technician qualifications and registering their inspectors for the list of ICC, ACI, NICET, and CWI certifications that are required for each inspection readily performed on today's construction projects.
Following a virtual seminar titled Best Practices in Fire Safety (April 14, 2004), the Washington, D.C.-based Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International provided this advice: "For sprinkler systems, consider specifying testing be performed by an individual certified by NICET [National Institute for Certification Engineering Technologies] having minimum NICET Level 3 automatic sprinkler certification with a minimum of two years experience at this level." Regular maintenance should comply with the latest edition of the NFPA 25, Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems.

Since NFPA-25 stresses testing by "knowledgeable personnel," both the AFSA and NFSA promote inspection by professionals certified through the National Institute for the Certification of Engineering Technicians (NICET).
Certificates can be used as supporting documentation for CPD points required for NICET certification, as supporting documentation for credit hours required for re-certification as part of the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code (UCC) program and as supporting documentation for continuing education (CE) hours for Texas Commission on Fire Protection certifications.
