The training outcome required is to achieved competence in PRMPFES43A, CPPFES2043A or an equivalent assessment outcome at a CASA approved MTO or an RTO.
The Fire Protection Association Australia are currently offering a CD self-study version of the unit CPPFES2043A Prevent ozone depleting substance and synthetic greenhouse gas emissions which they are offering for $150 for those enrolled prior to 31 December 2013.

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world. With their “Mo’s” men raise vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. As an independent global charity, Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.
For several years now one of our Perth Members, Dave "Biffa" Beattie has encouraged his colleagues to either participate or contribute to Movember. Two years ago we co-ordinated the effort and have had two successful years of getting members to join in.
With November closing in on us, once again we are asking members, their families and friends to participate in this great charity. You can join in team ALAEA MoBros by going to the Movember Australia website - http://au.movember.com/?home and clicking on either the DONATE or SIGN UP tabs, and search for us - ALAEA MOBROS.
This is a GREAT fundraiser for men's health and donations above $2.00 are tax deductable!

Applying for an aircraft engineer licence?
Time is running out for licence applications under the CAR 31 system!
In mid-2011, changes were made to the way aircraft engineer licences would be processed in future.
The four-year transitional provisions allowing you to qualify under the old CAR 31 system will expire on 26 June 2015, leaving only the new Part 66 system as the method for LAME qualification.
