Certified Chimney Professionals, a national Chimney Sweeping Certification Board, proudly announces that Art Kalina of Chimney Monkey has successfully earned the Certified Chimney Professional (CCP) designation.
The CCP course involves a comprehensive chimney sweeping manual and rigorous independent testing. CCP candidates receive training in a variety of subjects, including chimney inspections and inspection standards, the science of fuels and combustion, heating and venting systems, and the cleaning of various heating appliances. The program covers a wide array of topics, including oil/gas boilers and furnace systems and addressing performance issues with chimneys and vents.
This intensive program also requires candidates to study and demonstrate knowledge of NFPA 211, the National Fire Protection Association Standard for Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents, and Solid Fuel-Burning Appliances – 2013 Edition.
All CCP candidates commit to upholding a professional code of ethics, underscoring their dedication to maintaining high standards.
“Our certifications aim to enhance the knowledge of experienced chimney professionals and provide them with the opportunity to prove through independent testing that they possess a professional-level understanding of codes, standards, and practices associated with being a Certified Chimney Professional,” says Marshall Peters, Director of Certified Chimney Professionals.
Marshall Peters raises an important question: “When it comes to fire safety, would you trust your home to just anyone with a ladder and a brush? Instead, entrust your chimney to a Certified Chimney Professional who has demonstrated a professional-level knowledge of chimneys and vents through independent testing.”
“We are delighted to announce that Art Kalina has achieved this esteemed CCP designation,” further adds Mr. Peters.
