James McMullen, Executive Director of the National Code
Services Association (NCSA), is proud to announce the
success of the
Forensic Arson Investigation class being taught in San
Francisco and Hilo, Hawaii. James served on the NCSA course
development committee for the National Fire Protection
Association (NFPA) 921 course. The next NFPA 921, Guide for
Explosion and Fire Investigations, course will be taught
next at Fire Show Reno. Certified Forensic Fire Investigator
McMullen states that students successfully completing NCSA’s
NFPA 921 course will be certified as
Forensic Fire Investigators by NCSA. Chief McMullen

help successfully qualify them by the courts as a
Qualified Arson Investigator.
