IFE Qualification Payments

As some members may be aware the Fire Service has recently stopped processing the IFE “Qualification Bonus” payment to workers who achieved the qualification from the IFE through Recognised Prior Learning (RPL), under section 2.6.17 of the CEA.

At present there are ongoing discussions between the Fire Service, IFE and NZPFU to resolve this issue. At this point the Fire Service is only processing applications for the Qualification Bonus to personnel who have actually passed the Grad IFE exam. The Fire Service has requested further information from IFE New Zealand on this matter.

Further details will be provided as discussions continue or once a resolution has been achieved.
