Greetings FPMA Members,

We are excited to announce that FPMA has a new website! We have updated our website to give you a richer experience. Our goal is to deliver the most updated content via this intuitive interface. As we increase the content of the website, we will be focusing on legislative issues, regulation, FPMA meetings and news about our industry. We are in the process of updating our members' only section that will have an updated member directory and information about our Council of Committees.

As an FPMA member, you can benefit from reduced costs on this mandatory training. Our online courses are approved by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and provided in cooperation with the American Safety Council. These courses meet all Florida and federal training requirements, and are easy to complete online. Students can immediately download and print a completion certificate upon passing the program.
