Fire inspectors and investigators are expected to grow as fast as the average for all occupations. As cities and other areas grow, there are more buildings to inspect and fires to investigate. Employment of fire inspectors and investigators should grow along with the population.
Most fire inspectors and investigators have experience in fire suppression in addition to a high school diploma. They get on-the-job training in inspection or investigation or attend training academies.
