Day-to-day management of AZCFSE is provide by the Executive Board of the Arizona State Fire Training Committee ACFSE(AZSFTC), 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 State Training Committee, a volunteer group of dedicated fire service professionals, is responsible for coordinating and managing the annual Arizona Fire School presented each year in September in the City of Mesa.
