The need for professional development in the fire service was officially identified by FEMA, the U.S. Fire Service Administration, and the National Fire Academy in the early 2000s. In 2006, the three agencies worked together to create the Fire Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) program. The strategic mission of the FESHE program was to produce a national model for an integrated, competency-based system of professional development for Fire Emergency Services. The application of this national model integrates training and certification with higher education and experience.
