Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are any of Fire Cert Academy’s questions the exact questions I will see on my NICET exam?

Q: Am I guaranteed to pass my NICET exam studying with Fire Cert Academy?

A: No. Fire Cert Academy is a tool to help professionals gauge their level of knowledge. The tool is designed to help you get faster at finding answers in your codebooks. While our members’ pass rate is much higher than those who do not practice, we cannot guarantee success.


Q: Which NICET exams can I take practice tests for?

A: We currently support the following with practice tests:

  • Fire Alarm Systems Levels I – IV
  • Water-Based Systems Layout Levels I – IV
  • Special Hazards Systems Levels I – II

  • Inspection & Testing of Water-Based Systems Levels I – III
