As part of our commitment to provide industry leading training to our field technicians, the Wormald teams in the Northern Territory and Wollongong are the first to be accredited under the Fire Protection Accreditation Scheme (FPAS).
This comes as the Northern Territory Fire and Rescue Service has issued an advisory note in relation to Australian Standard AS 1851-2012 Routine Service of fire protection systems and equipment, acknowledging that accreditation via FPAS demonstrates that individuals are competent, have relevant experience and insurance, and are committed to a professional code of conduct.
Garry Durbin, Northern Territory regional manager for Wormald, commends his team of fourteen: “Accreditation is an important step towards reinforcing Wormald’s position as leading fire protection business in the Territory. It provides customers with peace of mind that the maintenance of fire safety measures in their buildings is conducted by competent technicians.”
Wormald has committed to formally recognising the skills of its 600 plus team of inspect and test technicians under FPAS by 2020. FPAS is a two-stage scheme offered by the Fire Protection Association of Australia (FPA Australia).
