FPAS qualification training links

 

If you are currently, or hope to be, an accredited practitioner under the Fire Protection Accreditation Scheme (FPAS) categories of Fire Systems Design (FSD) or Fire Safety Assessment (FSA), you need to hold the relevant qualifications and additional units of competency.  

 

To help practitioners to attain these units of competency, below are links to the different RTOs offering each unit, as outlined on COAG's skills website:  training.gov.au.  

 

To find a RTO, simply click on the relevant link below and select "Find RTOs approved to deliver this unit of competency".  

 

If you're still looking for your core qualifications, your RTO - FPA Australia - can already deliver the Certificate II and Certificate III in Fire Protection Inspection and Testing, through:  

 

  • learning and assessment; 
  • recognised prior learning; or 
  • gap training process.  

 

Enrol today and start your course tomorrow.
