The City of Cape Town held a graduation ceremony for the new recruits.

The graduates were joined by 21 staff members who received their certificates for successfully completing the NFPA 1041 standard for Fire Service Instructor: Professional Qualifications at Fire Service Instructor 1 level.

Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith says this forms part of investing career development for the employees.

“These Officers can now facilitate training for our more than 1 000 staff members in the Fire and Rescue Service, which means that more staff can benefit from skills development and continuation training programmes, but more importantly, internationally recognised qualifications”.
