We work across a wide range of functions to provide independent certification of public safety practitioners.


We have developed role certification standards which we provide independent assessment against for a range of disciplines including firefighting, rescue, instructing and more.


Get your agency personnel independently assessed for specific public safety roles from emergency driving to technical rescue through a quality assured process aligned to ISO 17024.


IPSQA is the International Public Safety Qualifications Authority. We develop standards, provide independent role certification for emergency service practitioners, and accredit public safety degrees around the world. 

We are not a training provider. We set standards, work with industry experts who become assessors for our certification scheme, and support higher education institutes who offer accredited public safety degrees.
