  • Note: You can take the exam for gas, wood, or pellet on Saturday without taking the live review class, and you can take a retest, renewal exam, or a regular exam at that time too. Please call for details. 

The review and exam packages includes the exam, current reference manual, online review, six hour in-person review, and lunch. 

If you would like to do a test only without the review, a retest, a renewal, or don't want the manual, contact Larry Grogan at 480-772-2169, and he will do a manual invoice for you.

Your manual will be mailed to you within a week of registration. Attendees should try to register as soon as possible to ensure adequate  time to read and study the manual before the exam. The review class reviews the entire manual and does not review specifically what's on the exam.

Upon completion, and with a passing grade, candidates will receive NFI Certification credentials, including ID cards with photograph and listing on the NFI website. Certificates are good for three years and, with appropriate CEU’s earned, can be renewed indefinitely. Candidates who do not earn the required CEU’s for renewal have the opportunity to retest at a reduced cost. 

If you'd like to access to the review class on Hearth Online before the review and exam, the Heath, Patio and Barbecue Education Foundation will send you the link after you register. If you have any trouble, please call Larry at 480-772-2169.
