Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 0360-06-01-.04 - PROGRESSION

(1) Fire service personnel who have been certified at a specific progression level may take the examination for a lower (regression) level.
(2) If an applicant who has already achieved certification at a particular level(s) under prior NFPA standards wishes to achieve certification for those levels after the date Tennessee becomes accredited, the applicant will be allowed to do so and the waiting period shall not apply. The applicant will be required to complete all the requirements for the level(s) of certification sought.
(3) Unless otherwise prescribed in these rules, an applicant may progress to the next level of certification after achieving the prior certification level.
(4) A thirty (30) day waiting period is in effect only for those dependent levels of certification that require a prerequisite level of certification prior to testing at the desired level. For example, an applicant shall be required to wait thirty (30) days between Fire Instructor I and Fire Officer I examinations because Fire Instructor I is a prerequisite for Fire Officer I. However, an applicant shall be eligible to test on the same day for both Airport Firefighter and Fire Officer I if an applicant meets the prerequisite requirements for each level because neither level of certification is a prerequisite or dependent on the other level of certification.
