About Us

We've been providing high quality accredited distance learning to New Zealand's fire protection industry for more than 15 years - and we're still going strong.

Our vision is to maintain fire safety standards in New Zealand by ensuring people have the practical skills and knowledge to carry out fire safety practices to a high standard.

Hundreds of employees within the fire industry throughout New Zealand have achieved industry qualifications with Firetech Training Limited since it was set up by industry and Fire Protection Inspection Services in 1998.

Based in Auckland and Wellington, we're proud to be New Zealand's only accredited, private training organisation offering NZQA unit standards in fire safety and protection.  For Level 3 and Level 4 National Certificates we are subcontracted by Competenz to deliver the 'Off-Job' unit standard.

Firetech offers individual unit standards and short courses direct to the industry on a range on a range of fire safety topics, which can be tailored to suit your education needs – contact us for more information.

Firetech qualifications range from entry-level courses for those just starting out, to qualifications suitable for people with years of experience. The courses have been developed in conjunction with industry to reflect the skills and knowledge required by the range of roles within the fire protection industry.

We provide training in fire detection, fire protection, fire alarm systems, fixed fire protection systems, fire systems technology inspection and testing, firefighting equipment, basic fire science, workplace health and safety, and IQP and fire warden training.

Our fire safety training and education is delivered by correspondence and involves off-job and on-job assessments. Our training managers are experts in technical fire safety and industry training, and support students throughout their study, both in person and via email or phone.
