Revision to Australian Fire Protection Association’s Fire Systems Design accreditation
FPA Australia is advising all members of an important revision to our planned roll out of FPAS “Fire Systems Design” class of accreditation.
This class of accreditation will launch with Trainee (transitional) and Experienced (transitional) pathways, with the Qualified Accreditation pathway to be added at a later date.
This revision was made due to a number of factors;
First, the Association wishes to ensure that there is sufficient capacity among the existing Registered Training Organisations delivering the Diploma of Fire Systems Design, to deliver this qualification nationally.
- The Association, in our continuing engagement with regulators, is aware of current government consultations and reviews applicable to fire systems design work and we would like to ensure alignment wherever possible.
- This revision will allow the Association more time to engage actively with the membership and the industry with regard to the final specific requirements for the Qualified Accreditation pathway.
Any individual or business who has so far, submitted an expression of interest to the Association regarding Fire Systems Design will be contacted directly in addition to this communication.
The Association will announce a more detailed timeframe for the Qualified pathway rollout in the latter half of 2015, so be sure to check the FPAS page of our website www.fpaa.com.au/fpas regularly for further updates.
