PUA Fire

Project scope

 

This project will review and update 3 qualifications, 29 associated Units of Competency and develop 3 new units for the following fire related job roles:

  • Field Liaison Officer
  • Liaison Officer (incident management)
  • Jurisdictional Liaison Officer (state control centre)

 

The review of qualifications and units are in response to the 2020 Bushfire Royal Commission recommendations relating to the interoperability of fire agency personnel and resources.

This project will also address the skills and knowledge required to meet updated community safety regulations, industry skills requirements and changing community expectations.
