As part of the electrotechnology training package, new materials have been developed for assessing and reporting on smoke control features, and the Technical Advisory Committee is seeking feedback.

The unit, Inspect, test and repair fire and smoke control features of mechanical services systems, has been updated to address the skills and knowledge requirements for assessment and reporting on a building’s smoke control features. The revised unit will be included as an elective in relevant refrigeration and air conditioning qualifications and the existing Skill Set RAC Inspect, Test and Repair Fire and Smoke Control Features of Mechanical Services Systems.

The content covers fire dampers, smoke dampers, smoke and heat vents, and mechanical services air handlers. Assessment and reporting on this equipment is required under essential services fire measures legislation. The skills standards are intended to support employers in complying with this regulation.

Feedback must be submitted by close of business Thursday, April 21, 2022.
