9:00 am - Noon
NW Natural, 220 NW 2nd Ave, Portland, OR
Register by March 31
Who Should Attend
Anyone interested in being certified by the National Fireplace Institute should consider ordering the manual and taking the exam. Installers in Washington County should be aware the stove change out program requires NFI certification for installation, so this may be of interest to you. NW Natural will proctor the test.
NFI Gas Test Information
The NFI exam is limited to 2 1/2 hours. As soon as we receive your registration for the test, we will upload your data to NFI and they will send you the NFI Gas Manual. The key to passing the exam is to study the manual! Right before the test, which will be in paper form, we will answer questions about the format of the exam and rules for taking it. The exam will begin approximately 9:30.
