How did FPAS Come About?

The Fire Protection Association Australia (FPAA) introduced FPAS to help the fire protection industry establish standards and guidelines so that qualified personnel are eligible for accreditation.

There are several classes of FPAS Accreditation available. These include:

  • Fire Systems Design (FSD)
  • Fire Systems Certification
  • Inspect and Test (routine service)
  • Fire Safety Assessment

FPAS is a key part of ongoing efforts by the fire protection industry to:

  • increase industry standards;
  • ensuring technical competence;
  • deliver quality services
  • ensure compliance with Government regulations and Australian standards
  • and improve fire safety outcomes for the community.

Individuals accredited under FPAS must demonstrate competency to provide the services for which they have accreditation.

The Fire Industry Academy Registered Training Organisation (RTO) is one of the few institutions to teach all of the units of competency that align with FPAS. Our RTO number is 2881.

If you are unsure about what you require on top of your existing experience and education to secure your Fire Protection accreditation, see our consultancy service for advice. You can download the brochure below.
