CFAA Continuing Education… in class or online
We offer continuing education for Canadian Fire Alarm Association Registered Technicians, which gives you credits toward your annual quotas for registration renewal. You need 8 credits a year, of which 2 must be “Category One”. If, like most technicians, you renew annually, credits must be taken within the 12 months preceding your renewal. If you renew every two years, the credits must be taken within the preceding 24 months. More info at www.cfaa.ca/cecreditform.aspx. If you are unemployed or if your employer will pay for this training, you may be eligible for government help with the cost. Contact us if you would like to explore this.
