Notice to Students Regarding Licensing – Fire

Effective September 1st 2017, HB 1508 amends the Texas Occupations Code Section 53 that requires education providers to notify you a potential or enrolled student that a criminal history may make you ineligible for an occupational license upon program completion.

The following website provides links to information about the licensing process and requirements. http://www.tcfp.texas.gov/certification/basic_certification/basic_certification-overview.asp

Should you wish to request a review of the impact of criminal history on your potential Fire Supression Certification prior to or during your quest for a degree, you can visit this link and request a “Criminal History Evaluation.”
http://www.tcfp.texas.gov/certification/basic_certification/basic_certification-step_5.asp

This information is being provided to all persons who apply or enroll in the program with notice of the requirements as described above, regardless of whether or not the person has been convicted of a criminal offense.

Additionally, HB 1508 authorizes licensing agencies to require reimbursements when a student fails to receive the required notice.
