Certificate III in Fire Protection
Fire Protection course details
Course description and aims
This qualification provides a trade outcome in installing, testing and
maintaining fire protection systems.
Occupational titles may include:
- Fire protection systems technician.
The qualification has core and elective unit of competency requirements that
cover some common skills for the plumbing industry, as well as fire protection
specialist units of competency.
The plumbing industry strongly affirms that training and assessment leading to
recognition of skills must be undertaken in a real or very closely simulated
workplace environment and this qualification requires all units of competency
to be delivered in this context.
Completion of the general induction training program specified by the National
Code of Practice for Induction Training for Construction Work (ASCC 2007) is
required before entering a construction work site. Achievement of unit
CPCCOHS1001A covers this requirement.
