Our 2020 Vision for the Fire Protection Industry
Posted on : Friday, 20 November 2015
FPA Australia has a simple goal for the fire protection
industry: that all individuals will be 'fit-for-action' (trained,
competent and accredited) by 2020.

accreditation process simpler and more affordable.

our vision and our team will assist each business to ensure your
technicians gain accreditation as efficiently as possible.
We want your business to be clearly recognised as a provider of
quality services; an important point of difference compared with
those companies not committed to the future of the industry. With
this in mind, in the future, only Corporate members employing
accredited technicians will receive additional benefits of
membership such as promotion as 'providers of choice' on the
On behalf of our Association and the Board of Directors we would

2020 vision for the fire protection industry. We ask you to take
advantage of the opportunity to be recognised for the outstanding
work your business undertakes and we look forward to working with
you to achieve these important outcomes.
