The Arizona Center for Fire Service Excellence (AzCFSE) was established in 2010 with the support of the Arizona Fire Services Institute (AFSI), a consensus body representing Arizona's fire services with representation from the Arizona Fire Chiefs Association (AFCA), Professional Firefighters of Arizona (PFFA), Arizona Fire District Association and Metro Fire Chiefs.  

Day-to-day management of AzCFSE is provided by the Executive Board of the Arizona State Fire Training Committee (ASFTC), a 501c3 not-for-profit Arizona corporation.  AzCFSE staff are responsible for the day-to-day administration of fire service training and Arizona firefighter certification processes for the State.  Training and certification processes are presented by an instructor cadre from throughout the State.  AzCFSE works closely with all stakeholder groups from throughout the State  in establishing training programs and certification processes.

The ASFTC, a volunteer group of dedicated fire service professionals, is responsible for coordinating and managing the annual Arizona State Fire School presented each year in September in Mesa.
