Welcome Denver, Colorado Contractors

Effective January 1, 2023

The city of Denver, Colorado worked with CSA in late 2022 to take advantage of CSA's existing qualification exams.  In addition, CSA developed a customized fire alarm assessment that incorporates Denver amendments.  By recognizing CSA qualifications, contractors can now utilize the same exams to satisfy requirements for the State of Colorado and El Paso County.  Contractors doing fire alarm work in Denver will need to pass the DENFA exam which satisfies the requirements of the FA2 exam while also incorporating Denver local amendments.  CSA will be working with Denver to incorporate additional exams going forward.
