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 Handling Licences.


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 Scheme.
