New and Improved Specialized Finals Inspector Certification (SFI) Training

The newest edition of the SFI will be available in January. The SFI certification was introduced last spring as part of the HB 3462 pilot project. The class filled up quickly and we have received continuing requests to reoffer it. BCD has evaluated the SFI program in recent months and with the information gained we will be making some major changes to our next offering of the certification. The idea is to provide a SFI course and requirements that are even more user friendly.

Beginning in January the certification will contain three segments. First the participant will take an updated online course put together by BCD experts using the Chemeketa Community College elearn system. The second part of the course will be a 2-3 day live course that will include questions and review. The live class will end with the final certification test. The third part, a live practicum, will also take place at the live session. At the end of this 2-3 day event the participants will have completed all the requirements for the certification. If they pass the exam and practicum they will receive a certificate at the end of the last day. This format will allow individuals to begin to use the new certification faster than has been possible in the past.
