TECHNICIAN SUPPORT, ADVOCACY & MENTORING:
A higher standard of practice in the testing, service, maintenance, and installation of building life safety equipment and systems cannot be achieved without the three pillars:
Vigilance. Knowledge. Integrity.
A number of organizations purport to support these three basic principles. In Canada, of the three that should be advocating for and mentoring individuals that work in our industry, only the Fire Technicians Network has really stepped up to the plate. What support services do the others really provide? Will they assist in disputes involving your practice and your employer? Who will advocate for you?
Advocacy and mentoring services for our members is a FREE SERVICE we provide. We want you to succeed and flourish in the profession you’ve chosen! We also want to ensure you have access to the most current information available to take your career to the next level.
