Restricted Plumbing Worker Registration Courses (South Australia)

 

Individuals who perform routine service work on water based fire protection systems in South Australia are required to hold a restricted registration. There are two registration classes available to meet industry requirements;

 

  • One covering routine service of fire hose reels (up to yearly) and fire hydrants (up to six-monthly), and
  • One covering fire hydrants, fire pumpsets and fire sprinkler systems (up to six-monthly) as well as fire hose reels (up to yearly).

 

A Trainee registration class is also available for new employees allowing them to undertake routine service work under supervision of a person who holds full registration, whilst they complete the required training.

 

The changes introduced by the South Australian Government require anyone undertaking unsupervised routine service work covered by the restricted registration class for hose reel and hydrant systems must be enrolled in a relevant training course prior to 1 January 2020, and must complete that course and have been granted registration prior to 1 October 2020.

 

Individuals undertaking unsupervised routine service work covered by the restricted registration class for hydrant systems, pumps, sprinkler systems and hose reels must be enrolled in a relevant training course prior to 1 November 2019, and must complete that course and have been granted registration prior to 1 October 2020.

Training Course Information

  

To support technicians in South Australia gain the appropriate level of registration, FPA Australia has developed a custom training course for each of the two restricted registration classes.

 

The training courses are designed to suit both experienced technicians and those seeking to learn new skills.  Alternatively, Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) may be suitable for experienced technicians who do not require training.
