Extensive market research with facility managers in the health care sector resulted in the establishment of the NFPA Certified Life Safety Specialist (CLSS-HC) for Health Care Facility Managers program in 2015.
According to the findings of the study, healthcare facility managers have a strong desire to obtain a credential that demonstrates their understanding of the numerous life safety challenges that exist in the healthcare environment, as well as how to keep their facilities in compliance with the 2012 edition of NFPA 101®, Life Safety Code.
Note to all applicants seeking surveyor positions with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS): Not the CLSS-HC test, but the NFPA Certified Fire Inspector – I (CFI-I) certification is required of Life Safety Code Surveyor applicants, according to the CMS.

- Demonstrate proficiency in the application of NFPA 101®, the Life Safety Code®
