Certification Exam Fees

Certification fees can be paid by credit card. During regular business hours, credit card payments may be made over the phone (206-386-1450) or in person at the Fire Marshal's Office. You can also make your payment securely and conveniently online. View or download test, renewal or replacement card application forms.

Which certification exam should I take?

Recent changes to Standpipe Certification (STP) effective March 19, 2015. In order to ensure SFD's Certification Program is consistent with Washington State Law, STP Certification no longer includes installation. All individuals who install sprinkler pipes, including standpipes in the city of Seattle, must now hold Seattle sprinkler certification. For more information, view the letter to STP-1 certificate holders.

The fees for Certification Examinations are as follows:
