Industry leaders in the Fire Protection Systems and Technology industry – we need your expertise! February 13th, 2024 Our Fire Protection Advisory Groups (passive and active fire protection), made up of industry subject matter experts, have told us that we need to make a change to the New Zealand Certificate in Fire Protection Systems Technology (Inspections) (Level 4) with strands in Fire Detection and Alarms Systems, and Fixed Fire Protection Systems [Ref: 2579 Version 2] qualification. This qualification aims to provide the fire protection industry with inspectors who have the skills and knowledge to test and inspect active fire protection systems. Industry and providers have advised that version 1 of the qualification was in better alignment with industry needs. The reviewed qualification has been amended, in particular graduate profile outcomes and credit values, to again meet industry needs. As a result, we are proposing the New Zealand Certificate in Fire Protection Systems Technology (Inspections) (Level 4) with strands in Fire Detection and Alarms Systems, and Fixed Fire Protection Systems [Ref: 2579 Version 3], and we want to know what you think. We are now seeking feedback and interest from industry and stakeholders to ensure the qualification will meet the needs of the fire protection systems and technology workforce, and we welcome experts to share their thoughts. Because what matters to industry matters to us! Please provide your feedback through the survey or [email protected] if you have any questions. The survey will close on Friday 23 February at 5pm.
