“We are not a professional union, but together, we are a union of professionals!”




Advocacy, Mentoring, Consultancy, Investigation, Certification

“Be the change you want to see in the world.”  -- Mahatma Gandhi

“Effort and courage is not enough without purpose and direction.” -- John Fitzgerald Kennedy


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.



We offer a variety of technical training options that includes:

  • an extensive, freely accessible on-line information resource
  • interactive seminars,
  • traditional class based courses,
  • on-site/in-house training
  • webinar based courses (coming soon!)
  • webinar based upgrading and ongoing training (coming soon!)

For more information on the courses we offer (including pricing and availability) please visit our Training Centre!



Building owners, property managers, designers, installers, electricians, building officials, and the fire prevention community in Canada now have access to an unbiased, real-time information resource to assist them in:

  • determining required installation, service, and testing criteria,
  • reviewing inspection, Commissioning and Verification reports,
  • insurance and pre-purchase audits of building life safety equipment and systems,
  • forensic investigation of building life safety equipment & systems to determine pre-incident operational status and identify issues that may have impacted performance or functionality.
