The Country Fire Authority (CFA) is one of the world's largest, and most highly regarded community based emergency services organisations. We respond to fire and other emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whilst our firefighters are the cornerstone of CFA services, what goes on behind the scenes is just as important in helping to protect lives and property.

The Manager Learning and Development (MLD) is responsible for leading and shaping the delivery of operational training priorities and initiatives across a Region as well as driving agreed State-wide learning.

The MLD will be responsible to effectively manage the training budget for the Region (average budget per Region $2.4 million) and to ensure the Region is compliant with the standards stipulated by the ‘Australian Skills Quality Authority' and ‘Victorian Registration and Quality Association' to maintain our certification as a Registered Training Organisation.

The MLD possesses a sophisticated suite of competencies in addition to the core training and development skills, as they are required to provide strategic and leading edge thinking combined with leadership skills and a thorough understanding of industry and government standards and best practice.
