on CFAA APPROVED CATEGORY ONE TRAINING COURSES


If you’ve landed on this page and you happen to be a CFAA Certified Technician Member looking to top up your education credits for the year, you need only take two (2) Category ONE credit courses offered by either CFAA or their other approved training partners.  You can top up with a combination of between  four (4) Catengory FIVE one credit courses at $10.00 each (or two (2) two credit courses at $15.00 each) that are fire alarm related from the list below.  You will still need two (2) additional credits from a Category ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, SIX, or SEVEN source (manufacturer training, Code seminars, etc.) as long as they are Fire Alarm related.  More information regarding CFAA’s Continuing Education Credit requirements can be sourced at http://www.cfaa.ca/cecreditform.aspx.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Build Knowledge, Gain Skills, Modular Learning
 

Our Online Continuing Education Initiative focusses on specific topics that include installation guidelines, inspection requirements, relevant Codes and Standards, trouble-shooting, testing, service, and maintenance procedures.  These are all presented in byte sized modules that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.  They’re all less than $20.00, and are completely interactive sessions involving a REAL, LIVE Instructor!  They vary in length from 1.5 to 2 hours with very reasonable, topic-specific question periods to encourage maximum attendance and participation.  In most cases TWO sessions of the same module will be held daily (Pacific Time and Eastern Time Zones), when the minimum number of participants specified in each module are reached.  The maximum number for each session is limited to forty (40) participants.  You’ll be notified as each module is filled and given lots of notice to make scheduling your attendance easy.

Best of all, continuing education is offered to anyone interested in maintaining their skill-set and expanding their knowledge.  You do not have to be a member of the Fire Technicians Network to participate, but some certification agencies may limit the total number of annual hours you can claim outside of their own established criteria.  Exams based on the module’s content are available for all sessions to maximize your CE Course Credits.
