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.


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

Qualification Units

  • Unit 5: Fire Engineering Design and its Impact on the Fire Resistance of Materials and Structures
  • Unit 7: Pressure Differential Systems
  • Unit 8: Fire Engineering Design and its Impact on the External Spread of Fire
  • Unit 9: FE Design and its Impact on Access and Facilities for Fire-Fighting
  • Unit 10: Principles of Fire and Evacuation Modelling

Core Topic Areas

Using case studies to assess:

  • Impact of fire engineering design on internal fire spread
  • Impact of fire engineering design on internal structure
  • Impact of fire engineering design on external fire spread
  • Impact of fire engineering design on access and facility requirements for Fire Service
  • Series and parallel pressure differential systems
  • Fire and evacuation models


Assessment of course work is to qualification assessment criteria.
