Description

The PUA60919 Advanced Diploma of Public Safety (Fire Investigation) is designed for firefighting professionals performing fire investigations. Fire investigation is the analysis of the origin and cause of unexplained or suspicious fires using basic fire science skills and knowledge.

The role of a fire investigator is to analyse fire related incidents to determine whether a crime has been committed. This includes reviewing the remains of a fire and seeking to obtain information to reconstruct the sequence of events leading up to the incident. Fires can involve a variety of ignition sources and fuels therefore, fire investigators need to have a working understanding of areas such as construction, electricity and mechanical devices.

This qualification includes the units of competency required by fire investigators to perform a range of activities such as conducting investigations, analysing fire origin and cause and attending judicial hearings. It typically involves the use of specialised equipment, resources and services.

The fire sector is those sections of government departments, statutory authorities or organisations that have responsibility under jurisdictional arrangements for the delivery of firefighting and fire management services.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
