PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

This qualification is intended for persons who are working at a supervisory level, or intending to work in supervisory level within the emergency services.
The qualification recognises the competencies of people who have the responsibility of performing management and supervisory functions relating to emergency services in the context of fire and rescue including risk and hazard identification at operational incidents.

It will enable learners to take charge in incidents in the workplace in order to make tactical spontaneous decisions. Learners will be provided with competencies to lower risks and mitigate negative circumstances thus increasing safety for the individual and the broader community. Learners completing this qualification will be able to conduct basic fire safety inspections, risk assessment fire investigations, and pre-incident planning using applicable legislation and evaluate safety plans. This qualification can further employment and/or advancement to a supervisory position in the fire and rescue operations environment and provides learners with knowledge and skills in meeting a range of emergency, fire and rescue needs. The qualifying learner will be able to supervise and coordinate the effective use of resources in the workplace.

On achieving this qualification the learner will be able to:
  • Respond to and supervise fire fighting, rescue and hazmat incidents.

    Integrated Assessment:

    Assessment at qualification level requires a combination of assessment approaches reflecting three major forms of learning.

    This includes a common summative assessment of sample theoretical understandings explicitly stated or embedded in the core and fundamental unit standards, the practical application of this theory demonstrated though performance observed and recorded by an instructor/registered assessor, and a workplace learning experience record of some kind, i.e. logbook, workplace coach/supervisor's witness statement and/or assessor's records of observations of applied competence.

    Integrated assessment at the level of qualification provides an opportunity for learners to show that they are able to integrate concepts, ideas and actions across the various bodies of knowledge and practice to achieve applied competence that is grounded and coherent in relation to the purpose of the qualification.

    Integrated assessment must judge the quality of the observable performance, but also the quality of the thinking that lies behind it. Assessment tools must encourage learners to give an account of the thinking and decision-making that underpin their demonstrated performance. Some assessment practices will be of a more practical nature while others will be of a more theoretical nature. The ratio between action and interpretation is not fixed, but will vary according to factors such as the learners involved, the resources available and policies and practices of the provider.

    A broad range of functionally orientated and theoretical assessment tools may be used, with the distinction between practical knowledge and disciplinary knowledge maintained so that each takes its rightful place.

    As each situation is different, it will be necessary to develop assessment activities and tools that are appropriate to the contexts in which practitioners are working. These activities and tools may include self-assessment, peer assessment, formative and summative assessment.

    In assessing for applied competence and critical cross-field outcomes as described, the assessor must design a holistic assessment focused at the competence described in the purpose statement of this qualification. Because of the nature of emergency services, demonstrations of applied competence will normally take place in simulated emergency situations. It is important that the conditions be simulated effectively in order to reproduce as far as possible a stressful context in which a clear head and quick thinking are required.

    The qualifying learner must demonstrate achievement in the following areas of applied competence:

    The learner must demonstrate an ability to consider a range of options and make decisions regarding:
  • The prioritisation of their own safety and the safety of members of the public.
  • Adaptive ways in which to apply their knowledge and skills depending on the situation.

    The learner must demonstrate understanding and knowledge in the relevant bodies of knowledge as listed under `Essential Embedded Knowledge:
  • The assessor must encourage learners to give an account of the thinking and decision-making that underpin their demonstrated performance.

    The learner must demonstrate an ability to learn from her/his actions and to adapt to changes by:
  • Reflecting on own practice, and adapting and modifying it accordingly.
  • Reflecting on their own patterns of learning and creating opportunities for future learning. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    Comparability with leaders in the field:

    Many countries implement training programmes according to international codes and standards developed by National Protection Fire Association (NPFA) which is a professional fire organisation comprising specific industries to set forth widely accepted standards of care and operations for certain practices with 140 member countries. When selecting the countries in conducting international comparability, it is noted that they were chosen, firstly, because they are all members of the International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC) and they offer training and development in the field of emergency services and fire rescues based on the NFPA standards that accredits over 100 Fire Service Providers internationally as a custodian of certification and quality assurance, basing its accreditation on NFPA standards.

    The search therefore indicated that most training programmes and/or qualifications or courses offered in the USA and UK as leading countries have been found to be comparable with the South African qualification although they are based on the NFPA levels.

    Comparability with USA standards:

    Membership in IFSAC currently consists of more than 80 organizations, including more than 40 states, the U.S. Department of Defense and armed forces branches, the Canadian Department of Defense, several Canadian provinces, the British Fire College, the South African Fire Service Institute, and the Australian Fire Trainers Association, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar and Iraq. This qualification is therefore developed with the input of the representative of the South African Emergency Services Institute, which is a voting member in IFSAC which is believed to be developed with the highest standards that meet international requirements.

    In addition, the Confederation of Fire Protection Associations-International (CFPA-I), which is a body of leading fire protection organizations from around the world also fosters improved international fire safety codes and standards with the primary aim to reduce the global fire problem and increase life safety. The CFPA-I meets every three years at which time some of the more challenging global fire problems are debated in which South Africa is a member and has given reference to current trends in emergency fire fighting practices that also informed the development of the qualification by taking cognisance of the current trends in fire prevention and protection by means of shared experiences, research, technical know-how, and fire statistics.

    It must be borne in mind also, that the qualification has been developed in the manner that is in compliance with the relevant provisions of South African National Standards (SANS 10090:2003) respectively which give reference to the seven National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards that are registered by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

    This qualification has therefore been benchmarked with the following NFPA certificates:
  • NFPA 472: Hazardous Materials Operations.
  • NFPA 472: Hazardous Materials.
  • NFPA 1001: Firefighter I.
  • NFPA 1001: Firefighter II.
  • NFPA 1002: Driver/Operator-Pumper.
  • NFPA 1003: Airport Firefighter.
  • NFPA 1041: Fire Instructor I.
  • NFPA 1041: Fire Instructor II.
  • NFPA 1006: Rescue Technician.
  • WA State Standard (2001): AW Marine Firefighter.

    The qualification content therefore compares well with the competencies of the different NFPA levels identified, although the qualification is not position/designation specific but more comprehensive in addressing key competencies required at supervisory level for emergency services and rescue operations explicitly covered by the following core and elective unit standards:
  • Analyse and supervise hazardous materials incident (Core).
  • Deal with hazardous materials (Core).
  • Supervise fire fighting and rescue operations (Core).
  • Conduct fire safety activities (Core).
  • Perform support operations at a fire incident (Core).
  • Respond to and direct rescue operations in aircraft marine incident (Elective).
  • Respond to aircraft fire fighting and rescue operations (Elective).
  • Supervise heavy vehicle rescue operations (Elective).
  • Perform swift water rescue Level 1 operations (Elective).

    Comparability with the United Kingdom:

    In the United Kingdom, Edexel Awarding Body has been accredited to provide BTEC Certificates in different sectors. BTEC Awards, Certificates and Diplomas are designed to provide focused and specialist work-related qualifications in a range of sectors. "BTEC in Emergency Fire Services in the Community", which is offered by Edexel targeting fire fighters under the auspices of a Short Course Framework and covers a number of countries, including Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka, to name but a few. This is the only formal qualification that could be compared with the South African qualification that has an equivalence of NQF Level 4 or 5.

    Another group of countries base their fire and rescue qualifications on the UK model such as the Scottish Fire Services College (SFSC) which provides work-related Emergency Fire Services training programmes for fire fighters such as 'Emergency Fire Services: Operations in the Community, Level 3 (G6LY23' respectively. The unit standards that were found to compare favourably with the South African qualification are:
  • Community Safety Awareness.
  • Personal and organisational development for Fire-fighters.
  • Hazards and risks in operational incidents.
  • Fire operations.
  • Incidents involving buildings, structures and aircraft.
  • Supporting the effectiveness of an operational response.

    These unit standards were found to compare well with the unit standards in the South African qualification as they address the same competencies required for fire and rescue personnel as identified in the Exit Level Outcomes of the qualification.

    Comparability with SADC countries:

    Qualifications searches have been conducted in the SADC region in Botswana, Ghana, Namibia, Angola, Swaziland and Zimbabwe through qualifications authorities and/or Fire Brigades. Unfortunately there were no qualifications found from their national qualifications framework that relate to the field except the fact that most Fire Services institutions get their Fire Officers trained either in the UK or USA.

    Comparability with other countries: New Zealand:

    In New Zealand, the Fire and Rescue Services Industry Organisation (FRSITO) is an organisation that is responsible for setting national standards to cover the skills, knowledge and experience required for fire and rescue industry, as well as moderating internal and external training provision. Their National Qualifications Framework has unit standards pegged from levels 2-6 and a number of qualifications pegged at Level 2-4 in specialist fire and rescue services. The following are the qualifications for fire and rescue services registered on the NZ NQF.
  • National Certificate: Fire and Rescue Services (Urban Fire and Rescue Operations) (Level 2).
  • National Certificate: Fire and Rescue Services Airport (Basic) (Level 2).
  • National Certificate: Fire and Rescue Services (Urban Fire and Rescue Operations) (Level 3).
  • National Certificate: Fire and Rescue Services (Urban Fire and Rescue Operations) (Level 4).
  • National Certificate: Specialist Rescue (Rope Instructor) (Level 4).
  • National Certificate: Fire and Rescue Services Airport (Supervisory) (Level 4).
  • National Diploma: Fire and Rescue Services (Urban Fire and Rescue Operations) (Level 5).
  • National Diploma: Workplace Emergency Risk Management (Building Fire and Emergency Manager) (Level 5).
  • National Diploma: Fire and Rescue Services (Vegetation Fire Fighting: Management) (Level 5).

    The equivalent qualification (in terms of level and competencies) is the National Diploma in Fire and Rescue Services (Urban Fire and Rescue Operations)(Level 5). The majority of unit standards contained in this qualification compare favourably with the unit standards in the South African qualification as follows:
  • Identify, control and lessen hazards in fire and rescue service operations at accident sites.
  • Assess risk with respect to fire.
  • Lead a petrochemical emergency response team.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of aircraft for fire and rescue operations.
  • Apply legislation in fire and rescue services.
  • Direct rescue operations in aircraft marine incidents.
  • Perform specialist rescues in confined spaces.
  • Undertake structural collapse rescue as part of an urban search and rescue (USAR) operation.
  • Provide initial response at rope rescue incidents.
  • Apply ventilation techniques to assist fire and rescue operations.
  • Exercise initial command and control at hazardous substances emergencies.
  • Incorporate and evaluate legislation in standard operating procedures in fire and rescue services.
  • Control incident management activities at accident scenes in fire and rescue services.
  • Incorporate community risk management elements into fire and rescue services planning.
  • Investigate and report on fire causes.
  • Establish a workplace emergency response team.
  • Conduct on-job training for adults.
  • Control incident management activities at accident scenes in fire and rescue services.
  • Drive fire and rescue vehicles in emergency situations.

    Conclusion in terms of international comparability:

    In conclusion, the qualifications examined compare extremely well to the South African qualification in both leading and other countries such as New Zealand taking into account the fact that some have been developed specifically for fire and rescue officers and/or firefighters already practicing in the field, whereas the South African qualification focuses on generic competencies in the core component and specialised competencies in the elective component, thus providing open access to persons who wish to enter the field and those who are already practicing in the field.
