FPA Australia is a registered training organisation (RTO) that
is committed to improving the competence of fire protection
Specialising in Fire Protection Maintenance training, we offer
two nationally recognised qualifications, and a range of around 40
individual units of competency for technicians to select from. Our
qualifications and units meet the needs of many of the Queensland
Building & Construction Commission (QBCC) Fire Occupational
Licences, and the Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) and Synthetic
Greenhouse Gases (SGG) Extinguishing Agents Handling Licences.
Our product range is flexible enough to be delivered as
self-study units, where the technician enrols and receives
materials to work through in their own time and pace. Or our
students can enrol in one of the regular workshops facilitated by
our Learning & Development Specialists. Workshops are regularly
held in most capital cities and some major towns around Australia,
and those who are interested can select to either enrol directly
into the next available workshop or join a waiting list.
We offer assessment-only workshops to enable people to quickly
gain competence for skills and knowledge they already have and we
also tailor training and assessment specific to the needs of our
clients for groups of six or more people.
Currently we are offering CPP20511 Certificate II and
CPP30811 Certificate III in Fire Protection Inspection &
Testing. These qualifications have recently been updated to include
best practise and current workplace practises.
FPA Australia has also now launched the Fire Protection
Accreditation Scheme (FPAS) to recognise technicians who work in
the test and inspect fields of fire protection systems and
equipment. Students who achieve competence in units from the new
CPP20511 and CPP30811 will be well on the way to gaining
accreditation in this Scheme. Visit the FPAS webpage
