Sign Up Now or Miss Free FPAS Transitional Accreditation

Posted on : Thursday, 10 November 2016


Free Transitional Accreditation (Inspect & Test) under the Fire Protection Accreditation Scheme (FPAS) will end on 31 December 2016 for members of the Association. FPA Australia is encouraging members to take advantage of this great offer  before the New Year's Eve deadline.


Throughout 2016, the Association has offered Members free FPAS transitional accreditation for Inspect & Test as well as heavily subsidised training as part of the Association's 2020 Vision for the fire protection industry - working towards all fire protection technicians being trained, competent and accredited by the year 2020.


Since this initiative was launched in January of this year, we have accredited thousands of people and we want to thank every individual and business that has taken advantage of the program so far.


There has been  tremendous momentum in 2016, along with the many newly accredited technicians processed,   many more are currently going through the application process.


This has also led to an increasing number of our Corporate Members gaining FPAS Recognised Businesses status, increasing their visibility on our Provider of Choice search tool on the FPA Australia website.


The "free" Transitional Accreditation offer for FPAS (Inspect & Test) will end on 31 December 2016. This means, now is the time for Members to Register for FPAS.


Corporate Members who register their business for FPAS will have 90 days to ensure each individual completes their accreditation application.

Any new applications received after 1 January 2017 will be charged the standard $200 (2 year) fee. The current program for training subsidies will remain in place until 31 December 2019.


FPA Australia is here to help ensure members are not left behind and that you join the wave of interest and applications we have had so far.
