Display Operator Testing

Taking the Test

The display operator test is based off the National Fire Protection Agency 1123 (2014 edition). You will be provided a copy at the test site. No copies will be allowed to leave the test site and no personal copies may be used. If you would like a copy for personal use, you may contact the National Fire Protection Association at 800-344-3555.

We are unable to provide you with a copy as it is copyrighted material. The exam must be administered by the Office of the State Fire Marshal; applicants cannot take the test at their local fire department.

Application for Testing

Once you complete the application process, you will receive a letter advising you have been approved to take the test. Only after you have applied and received approval, may you sit for the test.
