CFA has issued the following statement in relation to the Fiskville Training Centre
Please note: The form that applicants for the Redress Scheme are required to complete asks applicants to provide details of their employment, training or contracted service history at Fiskville, however the form notes that if the Scheme require further information or supporting documents they will discuss this with applicants once the application is received. Therefore CFA encourages you to provide the detail you recall and lodge your application with the Redress Scheme.
