amend the propose changes to licensing laws that are taking place in Qld MAY 1st
The proposed changes will put fire protection costs up for the provider & for the end client as there won’t be enough competition in the market place to control the pricing as the smaller companies will be forced to shut down or raise their prices to the upper end of the market.It will put 60% of the industry out of business which means 60% of employees out of work.The changes can easily be made with restricted plumbing or electrical licences however to suit the self-interest union/trade groups this has been dismissed. They tried this in Victoria and it didn’t work, they have brought in a restricted plumbing licence as they recognised there would not be enough of a workforce to complete the work.Currently there is only one RTO that you can do a course to upskill(keep) your licence & job or to in the future obtain these licences.These changes have been implemented by self interest groups – STC & NFIA & others.

There is nothing to say the people replacing them from the self-interest groups have the knowledge to do the job. Just because they did a course 10 or 15 years ago doesn’t mean they have retained the knowledge or understand the current requirements to complete the job competently, it just means they were given a certificate 10 or 15 years ago.
