About Us

The Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of BC (ASTTBC) grants professional recognition to qualified Fire Protection Technicians.   Fire Protection Technicians (RFPTs) inspect and test fire protection and life safety systems throughout BC in private and commercial buildings including multi-story residential buildings, hotels, hospitals and industrial facilities.

The ASTTBC Fire Protection program certifies individuals that meet education, training and experience requirements to provide accurate inspection and testing as specified by the BC Fire Code, and are professionally certified to ensure full public accountability.
