He shares his knowledge with others in his capacity as a speaker, presenter and instructor both in the US and across the globe. He is licensed as a Professional Engineer in six states, a Certified Fire Protection Specialist, Level IV NICET senior fire sprinkler layout technician and holds four additional NICET certifications.
With an active leadership role within the industry, Bless chairs the NFPA technical committee for Record Storage, NFPA 232, and serves on the NFPA technical committees for Building Systems and Special Occupancies (NFPA 1 – Fire Code); Installation (NFPA 13); Correlating (NFPA 13); Water Spray Systems (NFPA 15); and Remote Inspections (NFPA 915).
Bless’ work with the Saudi Electric Company group is vital, as the CFPS is an essential credential verifying proficiency in mitigating both physical and financial loss from fire hazards.
