This program satisfies the theory training requirements of the Canadian Fire Alarm Association (CFAA) for registration as a Registered Fire Alarm Technician. It consists of 5 Courses, each requiring 36 hours. Short course descriptions are here. The cost of tuition and books for the entire program is $3732.00 plus GST/HST.
We issue a Record of Training for each course completed, which is recognized by the CFAA. To attain full registration, the CFAA also requires additional experience and competence. Learn more at the CFAA website.
We train in classrooms and online.
Classroom training takes 4 weekend days per course. Each day is 9 hours long. Classes are held on consecutive weekends in Markham, avoiding major Public Holidays, and run from 8am – 5pm daily. Due to the pandemic these classes can also be attended on Zoom.
We also offer a weeknight live online programme that completes each course in 12 3-hour sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Students who will be paying their own tuition will be welcomed under our Vocational Training rules. Learn more about Vocational Training Admission Requirements and Registration Process.
Students whose training is paid by their employers are welcome too, but have other options and may benefit from generous government grants. Learn more about Corporate Training options
We operate on a strict first come, first served basis.
