Position Details

The Country Fire Authority (CFA) is one of the world's largest, and most highly regarded, community-based emergency services organisations. We are proud of the work we do in protecting lives and property, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. CFA strives to be a values-based organisation and an organisation of choice for volunteers and employees, where people with a variety of skills, experiences and backgrounds all add value through the roles they perform.

About the project:

The Safety Compliance Project is responsible for implementing a range of risk mitigation strategies across identified CFA Brigades. These initiatives have a significant impact and include the rollout of training delivery, issuing of new equipment, introducing new training props and completing vehicle modifications.

About the Role:

This is a significant and large-scale, State-wide project which requires an organised and proactive individual to contribute to coordinating the design, development, implementation and evaluation of training programs that encourage, maintain and strengthen the capability of our volunteers.

You will provide direct support and advice to Regional Learning and Development teams, ensuring consistency and standardisation of leadership training and work closely with a diverse range of stakeholders.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Coordinating and preparing training resources and materials including tracking and ordering materials as required.
  • Communicating with internal and external customers, and with external providers.
  • Preparing reports on training activities and course delivery performance measures. Undertake analysis and present findings/recommendations to support the planning and monitoring of training activities.
  • Manage training records – entry, processing, assessment, validation and archival.
  • Maintain the Learning Management System (LMS) ensuring data quality for Leadership Team.
  • Ensure learning and assessment materials are compliant with the AQFT standards and support the maintenance of CFA's RTO status.
  • Coordinate accreditation courses and professional development for Trainers and Assessors to ensure CFA are compliant with our RTO standards

About You:

You will have proven experience in a related role with well-developed written and verbal communication skills to develop reports & correspondence and to convey training information and objectives to internal & external customers.  Ideally you will also bring an understanding of contemporary-based training and development business practices.

Crucial to your success in this role is the requirement of TAE40116 and an understanding of the arrangements, standards and environment of an RTO. 

You will be highly organised, adaptable and able to juggle and prioritise multiple projects within budget, quality and time parameters. Further to this you will be professional, a great team member and excel in your follow up on tasks.
