Abstract: As solutions for adverse selection in the aspect of associate fire protection engineer certification, provision of usable and accurate information, accuracy of information verification and diversification of choice device were derived and following improvement plans were proposed according to the solutions. First, the undifferentiated qualification items should be reformed into qualification grading system that reflects the need of industrial settings like the associate fire protection engineer for construction, the associate fire protection engineer certification for inspection of construction, the associate fire protection engineer for design and so on. Second, to complement the problem of majority of people with certain level of education passing due to application qualification prioritizing level of education, level of education and work experience among application qualifications should be made equivalent or work experience should be prioritized. Finally, variety of choice of technical professionals should be secured by appointing both certified associate fire protection engineers and hands-on experienced workers while experienced workers are being excluded due to the regulation that only appoints certified associate fire protection engineers.
