Fire Protection Maintenance Training
FPA Australia is a registered training organisation (RTO) that
is committed to improving the competence of fire protection
technicians. 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
Our Fire Protection Maintenance product range is delivered as
self-study units, where each student enrols and receives materials
to work through in their own time and pace. Once self study has
taken place students can then enrol in one of the regular
Assessment Sessions in order to be assessed.
Assessment Sessions 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 session
or join a waiting list.
FPA Australia also administers the Fire Protection Accreditation
Scheme (FPAS) which recognises qualified and competent fire
protection technicians working in the test and inspect fields.
Students who achieve competence in units from the new CPP20511 and
CPP30811 will be well on the way to gaining accreditation in this

Mapping and Credit Transfer
Mapping and Credit Transfer Application
Do you hold a qualification or units of competency in Asset
Maintenance (fire protection equipment) but would like to update to
the new Fire Protection Inspection & Testing qualifications?
FPA Australia offers a service in qualification mapping. We can
review your completed qualification and, where your previous units
are equivalent to new units, issue you with a statement of
attainment in the new units.
This makes upgrading to the new qualifications much cheaper and
easier to achieve.
Complete the Mapping and Credit Transfer form and you will
receive a Mapping Report specific to your requirements which lists
your current units mapped against both a CPP20511 Certificate II
in Fire Protection Inspection & Testing and PP30811
Certificate III in Fire Protection Inspection & Testing.
The report will show you which units are equivalent to those you
hold, and which units you will need to complete in order to upgrade
to the new qualifications. Where applicable the report will also
show you where FPA Australia will accept a gap assessment (a
shortened version of a full assessment) in order to complete a
Gap assessment is substantially cheaper and faster than a full
assessment. You will also receive a statement of attainment for
those units that are equivalent and a $50 credit towards your next
enrolment with FPA Australia.
