Transcript requests

To receive an official copy of your transcript, you need to request it through Wake Tech’s Workforce Continuing Education Registrar

The Office of the State Fire Marshal will not accept a transcript for any course(s) in lieu of notification from the college or delivery agency for certification. 

Wake Tech protocol does not permit our office to send a screenshot or unofficial copy of your transcript.

It can take as long as 90 days for the class to show up on the Office of the State Fire Marshal’s "print transcript" web site.

If it has been longer than 90 days, email Allison Norris at [email protected] to request she send notification to the state office that you've completed the listed/required course(s).
