For all of those who wish to have a comprehensive knowledge of fire safety, CFPA-Europe has the “Fire Safety – Technical Cycle” course, which has a minimum duration of 15 days, corresponding to 100h of training, and is currently available in Belgium (ANPI), Denmark (DBI), Finland (SPEK), France (CNPP), Germany (VdS), Italy (AIAS), Portugal (APSEI), Spain (CEPREVEN), Sweden (BRANDSKYDDSFÖRENINGEN), Switzerland (SWISSI) and UK (FPA).
Besides the national fire safety regulations, in the course are treated several matters that are fundamental to the understanding of fire safety in buildings, including nature and behaviour of fire, behaviour of elements of structure and materials under fire conditions, control of fire and smoke spread, first-aid fire-fighting equipment, fire detection, design, control and maintenance of fire protection systems (sprinklers and aqueous and non-aqueous systems). In the CFPA-e Fire Safety – Technical Cycle course are also addressed issues as behaviour of people, risk assessment in industrial and commercial premises and fire protection management.
With the completion of the course, are acquired skills in terms of risks identification, control of fire causes and minimization of their consequences, use and application of prevention and protection systems and techniques and the relevant regulations and standards.
We highlight the fact that the course integrates a module on practical firefighting training, in which the trainees have the opportunity to learn to use first-aid fire-fighting equipment, namely fire extinguishers, blankets and hose reels.
The course gives access to the CFPA -Europe Diploma “Fire Safety – Technical Cycle”. In order to access this diploma, trainees need to get approval in a written examination plus a case study management report presented in writing or orally. This case study is based on a simulation of a fire safety audit in an industrial or commercial premise.
The course can be attended by all those involved in fire prevention that wish to deepen their knowledge, namely safety managers, advisers, consultants, experts, consultants in fire prevention, authority staff, inspectors and insurance professionals.
