SR1 Onsite System Inspector Certification

About the Online SR1 Course
The PSMA/NOF SR-1 (Standards Refresher) course is an alternate inspector certification option for verteran inspectors. If you are PSMA/NOF 102-Advanced certified, you are eligible to progress into the SR-1 certification program. Those interested in signing-up for the SR1 program should email their enrollment request to PSMA (email@example.com).
Those inspectors enrolled in the SR-1 program must complete the half-day SR-1 certification course and pass the certification exam (either classroom-based or online). Additionally, inspectors must earn 16 approved continuing education credits during the two-year cycle.
In order to aid PSMA/NOF SR-1 inspectors in maintaining their certification, PSMA has developed an online version of the half-day SR-1 classroom course. You can take both the course and the exam on your computer from the comfort of your own home or office. The course consists of downloadable documents like the updated Standards, video & PowerPoint presentations, and an online test.
How to View/Register for Online Courses
Online courses are available only to current PSMA members and their employees. PSMA uses a third-party website to host its online courses. A student account must be created for each individual student. Each student will need a personal email address to register. Once you have created your personal student account, you will be able to browse courses, purchase courses, re-visit courses. We have created an explainer video (see below) demonstrating how to create your student account and sign-up for a course (the example uses SR1).
If it is your first visit, students will need to create a "New Account."
