College receives JOIFF accreditation

The College is pleased to announce that we have received JOIFF accreditation for the following courses:

  • Breathing Apparatus Wearer - initial and refresher
  • Breathing Apparatus Instructor - initial and refresher
  • PERO

This is in addition to our existing portfolio of JOIFF accredited courses:

  • Fire Team Member – initial and refresher.
  • Fire Team Leader - initial and refresher.
  • JOIFF accredited practical firefighting courses.
  • Site specific courses (subject to proposed timetable submission for JOIFF accreditation)

To qualify for JOIFF accreditation courses and programmes have to be robust, challenging and relevant to the potential accidents/incidents on and off the site to which the emergency responder may be required to respond within their Site Emergency Response Plan. Content should be accurate within itself and accurate to the context of the emergency responder.

JOIFF Accredited Training includes training courses and programmes specifically developed for the sectors in which JOIFF members operate, the location and facilities where the training will take place and the instructors who will present and assess the training. JOIFF training is competency based and is therefore increasingly site specific, building on core emergency response team competencies. Key to all JOIFF accredited training and personal development of emergency responders is an accredited system of assessment and verification to ensure competence which should be demonstrated on an on-going basis. All successful participants in JOIFF accredited training courses / programmes receive JOIFF accredited certificates of competence. www.joiff.com
