Continuing Education Credit Form

 CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT SUBMITTAL
 
 
Watch the presentation by John MacDonald, CFAA Ontario Chapter President.

As of January 1, 2017 under the new CFAA Fire Alarm Technology Program, every Registered CFAA Fire Alarm Technician must have obtained and submit a minimum of 8 (eight) approved Continuing Education credits each year to renew their registration annually. The documentation verifying that this requirement has been met must be submitted to the CFAA prior to renewal of the technician’s registration. The Continuing Education must be relevant to Fire Alarm Systems and may include those ‘Performance Objectives and Skills’ outlined in the CFAA Fire Alarm Trainee Log Book. Preference for credit allotment will be given to those categories that provide proof of attendance and successful completion of a proficiency examination. The CFAA has final determination of the number of credits approved, which is not open to dispute or recourse. All required supporting documentation including the attached “CONTINUING EDUCATION SUBMITTAL FORM” must be emailed to: CE@cfaa.ca

Total credits required annually: 8 (Eight)
