Fire Engineering Design: 2

Target audience

This course is part of a series of three courses suitable for those who assess and design fire engineered buildings e.g:

  • Regulators – fire services, local building control officers and approved inspectors
  • Assessors – fire risk assessors and fire safety professionals
  • Designers – designers and architects of new and extend existing buildings

The series of courses provides learners with the knowledge and understanding through in-depth study and research of auditing Fire Engineering designs. It builds on previous experience in applying fire safety guidance such as Approved Document B and BS 9999.


Aim

Second of three courses to enable delegates to design fire engineering solutions or assess fire engineering design submissions.
