More About This Product

Description

During the early 1980's the Canadian Fire Alarm Association established the Fire Alarm Technician Program, leading to personal registration as a fire alarm technician.  It was created to provide training in the specialized area of fire alarm systems, thereby increasing the knowledge level of persons directly or indirectly involved in the fire alarm industry.

This educational program has been approved by various Authorities Having Jurisdiction nationwide and is now widely recognized within the industry.

This describes; the program intent, program structure, individual course content, qualifications for exemptions and CFAA Technician registration information. It is recommended that Trainees complete a minimum of 1500 hours of work experience to ensure that the CFAA Fire Alarm Trainee has acquired the knowledge and skills to successfully complete the Registration Exams. The CFAA has developed a CFAA Fire Alarm Trainee Log Book that provides a detailed reference for the kinds of training one should be trying to obtain to acquire the knowledge and skills required to successfully complete the Registration Exams. The CFAA Fire Alarm Trainee Log Book is NOT mandatory unless the Trainee is unsuccessful in completing the Registration Practical Exam on their second attempt. Some colleges provide fire alarm laboratory courses that are also recommended to those wishing to become Registered CFAA Fire Alarm Technicians. The work experience or lab training required by each individual will vary. Each individual must be well versed in all items contained within the CFAA Fire Alarm Trainee Logbook before proceeding. Once enough work experience or training has been obtained, the Trainee can then make arrangements to successfully complete the Registration Theory and then the Registration Practical Exam.

The combination of theory-based knowledge and workplace experience will together serve to increase the level of competence of fire alarm technicians within the industry.

Once an individual has completed the 5 courses in the CFAA Required Theory-Based Education they can become a Registered CFAA Fire Alarm Technician Trainee and then able to take both the CFAA Registration Theory Exam and Practical Exam to become a Registered Fire Alarm Technician. Each technician is issued a new photo ID with a unique registration number and the province of application. Technicians can also apply for Registration in other provinces with an additional fee for each province of registration.
