CFA is recruiting to a number of challenging and exciting positions that are integral to delivering the Government's initiatives to enhance the delivery of fire services.

You will work closely with Fire & Emergency Management (F&EM) and District Planning (Training) Committees (DPC), under the direction of Lead Regional Learning and Development, to enhance brigade capability and enable brigade viability.

The successful applicant will have:

  • Certificate IV in Training and Assessment or equivalent and an understanding of the arrangements, standards and environment of a RTO.
  • Well-developed written communication skills to develop reports & correspondence and to convey training information and objectives to internal & external customers.
