Modification History

Release 1

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Release 5.0.

Supersedes and is equivalent to CPC50509 Diploma of Fire Systems Design. Updated to meet the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Qualification Description

The Diploma of Fire Systems Design reflects and supports the role of fire systems designers who prepare detailed technical designs and documentation for water-based fire suppression systems and/or fire detection and occupant warning systems.

The Diploma of Fire Systems Design also includes a stream qualification for the annual certifier of fire systems.

Fire systems designers may enter the industry from a diverse range of occupations and sectors. They may choose to extend their careers by seeking to undertake subsequent higher education qualifications in related disciplines, including mechanical engineering and fire engineering.

The qualification has common core and elective unit of competency requirements that cover common skills for fire systems designers and certifiers, as well as specialist streams for:

  • water-based systems
  • detection and warning systems
  • annual certifiers.

Entry Requirements

There are no entry requirements for this qualification.

Packaging Rules

To achieve this qualification, the candidate must demonstrate competency in 12 units of competency:

  • 4 core units
  • 8 elective units.

The elective units are to be chosen as follows.
