DFES, in partnership with Australian fire services and the Australasian Fire and Emergency Services Authorities Council (AFAC) have worked with the Vocational Educational and Training (VET) sector to have home fire safety included into national qualifications for community care and health industry workers.
Click here for the complete list of units of competency and the VET qualifications which include fire safety.
To ensure currency and consistency of the information, fire services have developed the Basic Home Fire Safety Training Materials for Registered Training Organisations which deliver the relevant qualifications in every state and territory.
Fire services also recommend their use by:
- Community care providers as part of induction of new workers and skills maintenance of existing workers; and
- Individual providers of care including paid workers and family carers.
