The SAQCC-Fire has associated itself with training institutions which offer accredited training courses as per the requirements of SANS 1475.
PLEASE NOTE – IF THE TRAINING CENTRE IS NOT SHOWN BELOW, IT IS NOT RECOGNISED AND ANY CERTIFICATES ISSUED BY THAT CENTRE WILL NOT BE VALID.
ACTION TRAINING & NOSA – neither of these entities are recognised by SAQCC Fire to present the SAQCC Fire-1475 course until further notice.
Trainees must be registered with SAQCC-Fire 1475 and work for a minimum period of six months under the direct supervision of a registered competent person. Both must be employed by an SANS 1475 Permit holding company. A trainee has a minimum period of six months and a maximum of 24 months to apply to become a registered competent person.
To become registered as a trainee, the applicant must first successfully complete the five day course at one of the approved training centres and submit a certified copy of his certificate with his application for registration.
It has come to our attention that training organisations in terms of SAQCC training for Fire Extinguisher Technicians are not laying out the process and full requirements for registration to their prospective students.
To ensure prospective students are fully aware of the procedures concerning the qualification, the following will be communicated to them before the training commences, and they will sign a document concerning this matter. Click here to view document.
