1 New Certification and Training Structure For Fire Safety Codes Officers Summer 2017

2 New Certification and Training Structure for Fire Safety Codes Officers As you may have heard, the requirements to become certified as a Fire safety codes officer (SCO) are changing. The Safety Codes Council (Council) has been working with a group of stakeholders including SCOs, industry, labour and government to develop changes to Fire SCO certification based on feedback from the Alberta fire services community. We have been in conversation with SCOs and employers about these proposed changes including a widespread consultation in SCOs from all over Alberta spoke passionately about their profession and the needs of their communities, and the Council thanks you for your feedback. The purpose of this booklet is to provide you with detailed information about the new scopes of practice, new training courses, and to answer some frequently asked questions. Summary of Changes Specific scopes of practice have been developed for each Group and Level. For new SCOs, Group A is a prerequisite for Group B and Group C. A new stand-alone certification level has been established called Group E Petroleum Storage Tanks. Group D will be phased out. Those currently working as Group D SCOs may continue to work as Group D SCOs provided that they continue to meet the requirements for renewal; however, no new applications for this group will be accepted. Firefighting experience is no longer a prerequisite for any Fire certification. Existing Fire SCOs will retain their current certification. No additional training will be required, provided that the SCO s scope of practice continues to meet the needs of the accredited organization. With the new clarified scopes of practice, some SCOs will decide to gain another certification to meet the needs of their communities. For example, an existing Group A SCO might want to become a Group B Level 1 SCO so that they can work under the new Group B Level 1 scope of practice. Transition to the New Structure The Council understands the need to provide as much time as possible for SCOs to get any additional training they need to meet the requirements of their accredited organization s Quality Management Plan (QMP), so there will be a two year transition period before the new certification scopes are in effect. The new scopes of practice will be in effect May 1, New Certification and Training Structure for Fire Safety Codes Officers Page 1

Here s what you need to know As an SCO We encourage all SCOs to review the new scopes of practice for their current Group and Level. Talk to your QMP manager and employer to ensure that the new scope will cover your existing and anticipated duties. If not, the Council can help you determine what group or level you need to move to, and what training may be needed to accommodate the new scope of practice. For many SCOs, nothing additional will be required. As a Current Student If you are part way through your SCO training as a Group A, Group B, or Group C SCO, we recommend that you begin taking the new courses now available. See a complete list of courses starting on page 11. As a Prospective Student Group A is now a prerequisite for Group B and Group C. Should you meet the entry requirements for Group A, register for courses through the Council by calling , or by sending an to As an Employer Scopes of practice come into full effect in May Employers should review the new scopes of practice (outlined beginning on page 2) to make sure they have appropriately certified SCOs.

Why has fire experience been removed from the requirements? Fire experience was removed based on the recommendation of the Fire Certification and Training Working Group. The decision was based on the following factors: The Council s mandate to align Alberta certification requirements with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) which does not have firefighting experience as a requirement. In addition, there are no objective measurements for assessing the quality of fire experience. It is difficult for otherwise qualified applicants to obtain firefighting experience, as employers are reluctant to allow potential Fire SCO applicants to expose themselves to fire experience training due to the possibility of injury and resulting insurance issues. The Working Group assessed the scope of work for a Fire SCO and determined that inspections can be completed by an SCO using code knowledge and NFPA job performance requirements. 2. How did the process for making changes to the certification requirements for Fire SCOs unfold? The Fire Certification structure was last examined in A review was needed to examine gaps and ensure that SCOs have clarity on what they can or cannot do within the scope of their Group and/or Level. The Council also heard concerns from Fire SCOs regarding a lack of training for petroleum tank inspections. Certification and Training Structure Diagram Page 7

9 1 If you are already certified You will be able to continue to work with your current certification without needing any additional training, provided that the new scope of work covers the requirement of your organization s QMP. For many SCOs, no additional training will be required. 2 To become certified, or to gain another level of certification (Under the current structure) (Under the new structure) With the new scopes of practice, some SCOs will decide to gain another certification to meet the needs of their communities. If you are part way through your SCO training as a Group A, Group B, or Group C SCO, we recommend that you begin taking the new courses now available. The new courses, delivered through the Council, are now available as of May Training for the theory components of Fire SCO training can be started at any time, as the Council is now offering this training online. The theory courses, delivered through Lakeland College, will not be offered after December 31, The practical courses will continue to be offered by Lakeland after this time. Firefighting experience is no longer an entry requirement. Group A is a prerequisite for Groups B and C. Group E is a new stand-alone certification for inspection of petroleum tanks. After May 2019, petroleum tank inspections will no longer be a part of the Group B Level 2 scope of practice. No new certifications will be issued in Group D. There will be a two year transition period before the new structure takes effect. The new scopes of practice will be in effect May 1, Page 8 New Certification and Training Structure for Fire Safety Codes Officers Certification and Training Decision Tree Page 9

10 3. What changes have been made to the Fire certification structure? The new training courses align closely with NFPA 1031 (Inspector) and NFPA 1033 (Investigator) job requirements. This makes it easier for someone with NFPA certification to become an SCO, or for an SCO to take the NFPA exam and add NFPA certification to their credentials. Scopes of practice for each Group and Level are now clearly defined. The scopes are in line with the structure and requirements of the Alberta Fire and Building Codes. Group A will be a prerequisite for Groups B and C. Fire experience will not be an entry requirement. Group D will be phased out. Those currently working as Group D SCOs may continue to work as Group D SCOs; however, no new applications for this group will be accepted. Group E will be a new certification group that focuses on the inspection of petroleum storage tanks. This group will work closely with Petroleum Tanks Management Association of Alberta (PTMAA). 4. How has the Fire SCO training program been streamlined? Training builds on prior learning as SCOs acquire certification at different Groups and Levels. In the previous structure, courses taken for Group A did not count towards requirements for other certifications. Group A now has a requirement for written and verbal communication training and the Fire Prevention course has been replaced by Introduction to Inspections, which includes training on fire prevention as well as inspections. The Practicum for Investigations is now only a Group C Level 2 requirement. This change was made to better align with NFPA requirements. 5. Will Fire SCO training delivery be easier to access? The theory components of the Fire SCO training will now be delivered online directly through the Council, rather than by classroom delivery through the Emergency Training Centre at Lakeland College. Lakeland College will still offer the practical components of the training that involve conducting inspections and investigations at their campus in Vermillion. Fire departments will also be able to provide the practicum components of the training if they can provide suitable supervisors and evaluators. More information can be requested either through the Council or the Office of the Fire Commissioner (OFC). Page 10 New Certification and Training Structure for Fire Safety Codes Officers

11 Benefits to taking training through the Council s elearning include: No need to travel Self-paced learning Access to mobile learning Additional educational resources Each student will be assigned a course advisor 6. How do NFPA 1031 and 1033 correspond to Fire SCO certification? Individuals can obtain both National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications (Pro Board) and International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC) certification and Council certification for Fire SCOs with a minimum duplication of effort. Some equivalencies will be granted to holders of Pro Board and IFSAC certifications (NFPA 1031 and NFPA 1033) towards Fire SCO certification. Council certified Fire SCOs who want to gain Pro Board and IFSAC certifications can take qualifying exams through the OFC. The Council and the OFC have worked together to ensure that the practical requirements for Fire SCO certification and certification relating to the NFPA 1031 and NFPA 1033 standards will be identical, so that one set of practicum requirements will meet both certifying bodies requirements. 7. What courses will I need to take for a new Group or Level? Below is a full list of courses for each level.
