About Us

The Office of Education and Data Management (OEDM) is responsible for training and accrediting Building and Fire Code Officials, as well as providing code-related instruction to individuals in the allied trade professions and managing the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) for Connecticut.    Professional trainers work closely with members of the Office of State Fire Marshal and Office of the State Building Inspector to develop and teach training curricula that is timely and relevant.
 

Individuals who wish to become licensed Building Inspectors or certified Fire Officials must pass qualifying examinations.  These exams are developed and administered through the OEDM Testing Unit.   Prior to admittance to an exam, preparatory training programs are offered in both content areas.  These programs run from 18 days to 60 days in length, depending on the accreditation desired.

{OEDM}

Once licensure or certification is achieved, Building and Fire Officials are required by statute to earn continuing education credits to maintain accreditation. OEDM, in conjunction with the Deputy State Fire Marshal, State Building Inspector and Joint Training Council, develops annual training calendars based on new codes and high-priority topics.   Officials register for classes through OEDM’s administrative arm.

Our office tracks pre-accreditation training, credentialing criteria, continuing education credits, and conference registrations, and managed NFIRS and Burn Injury Reporting for all 256 fire jurisdictions in the state and all reporting health care providers.
