The Western Australian Government has announced that Fire Protection Association Australia is now recognised as a Level 1, 2 and 3 accrediting body for bushfire practitioners operating in Western Australia.
Four Bushfire Prone Planning (BPP) staff members attended a 1 day BPAD Level 2 and Level 3 workshop on the 19th of May at the innovation centre of Western Australia. Mike Scott, Co-director of BPP said he found the workshop to be very worthwhile as it provided a forum for Bushfire Practitioners to discuss changes and developments in the industry.

The Workshop covered the legislative requirements as well as work through specific case studies and consider the detailed application of policies, guidelines and other materials. In addition the workshop included discussion on FPA Australia’s expectations and requirements in relation to professional practice.
