In accordance with Title 153, Chapter 6, individuals must be licensed to inspect fire alarm systems in the State of Nebraska. The license is valid for four years and costs $100. A license may be obtained by either passing a test or, if NICET certified Level II or above, sending us a copy of your NICET certificate along with the pro-rated fee of $25 per year of the certification. Example: If your NICET certification expires April 1, 2013 and you are applying for the license in March 2010, the fee would be $75. The certificate will be returned with your license.


The Fire Alarm Inspector's Certificate Application AND The Citizenship Attestation Form must be completed to obtain a license to inspect fire alarms. The completed application and form must be mailed in along with the appropriate fee and a copy of your NICET certificate if applicable.
