Fire Engineering Technician: 1
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.
First of three courses to enable delegates to design fire engineering solutions or assess fire engineering design submissions.
- Unit 1: Principles of Fire Development and spread
- Unit 3: Review Effectiveness of Automatic Fire Suppression Systems
- Principles of automatic fire suppression systems
- Residential and domestic sprinklers: BS 9251
- Residential water mist systems: NFPA 750, BS 8458
- Commercial sprinklers: BS EN 12845
- LPC Sprinkler rules and ESFR: Early Suppression Fast Response Fire Sprinkler Systems
- Hazard review of commercial sprinkler systems
- Commercial water mist systems: NFPA 750, BS 8489
- Oxygen Reduction Fire Prevention Systems: BS EN 16750
- Gaseous and foam systems: BS EN 1365: Foam systems
- Case studies of Automatic Fire Suppression Systems
This course is part of a qualification to enable attendees to develop an understanding of fire engineering at technician level. It is a natural progression from achieving qualification: Level 4 Diploma in Fire Safety (Fire Inspectors) or an equivalent qualification or experience.
