Chris Tilley, FIA Membership Manager, said: “Competency and how you prove it is at the forefront of everyone’s mind right now, and if it’s not then it should be.

Come and visit us to get expert industry advice on how best to achieve competency for your company and engineers”.

About the FIA

The FIA is a not-for-profit trade association promoting professional standards in the UK fire safety industry.

The Association was formed in April 2007 out of a merger between two longstanding and well-respected trade associations, FETA (Fire Extinguishing Trade Association) and BFPSA (British Fire Protection Systems Association). The FIA is ‘owned’ by its members, which means that they are answerable to and representative of their members.
