As most people would be aware before LAMEs and AMEs are able to undertake any maintenance on aircraft fire extinguishing systems that contain SGG they are required to have completed SGG awareness training in accordance with regulation 302(1) of the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Regulations 1995. 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. Following this they intend to have an online version available at a rate equal to or lower than this price. After 1 January 2014 there will be a price increase for the CD version.
