This course has been updated for Assessments from April 2015 onwards.
The Fire Weather Competency Assessment Course will guide forecasters through the one-on-one assessment day activities. Each part of the course is related to a unit within the Fire Weather Forecasting Competencies.
The tasks on assessment day are designed to replicate what a forecaster is expected to do in an operational environment. You will be given sufficient time to complete all the activities.
At the end of the assessment day you will be assessed against each unit of competency as one of the following:
- Not yet competent
If you are assessed as "not yet competent" you will receive further training in the relevant areas and have the opportunity to be re-assessed at a later date.
Fire Weather Forecasting Competencies are valid for 5 years, provided that you participate in pre-season fire training and complete fire weather duties in an operational environment.
