The Association for Specialist Fire Protection’s (ASFP) innovative e-learning platform offers an online training solution to allow learners to study remotely towards Level 2 and Level 3 certificates in Passive Fire Protection, administered by the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE).

The revolutionary e-learning system uses high quality adaptive learning techniques to tailor teaching to each individual’s skills, knowledge, experience and behaviours (SKEBs), ensuring every learner receives precisely the right level of instruction and support to achieve exceptional levels of understanding and proficiency.

The unique interactive learning experience provides the perfect learning pathway for each individual, allowing them to develop the necessary competencies in the most efficient and effective way, often reducing learning time, while increasing understanding.

ASFP expert trainers are able to monitor each learner’s progress and offer personalised feedback, support and coaching as needed.

The content is based on original, tried and tested material from the ASFP’s highly successful classroom courses. These have a proven record of preparing learners for the IFE exam, leading to a high pass rate.

Both courses are arranged in three mandatory modules; with learners on the Level 2 Course able to choose their specialism from three passive fire protection installation modules.

Level 3 Certificate

This high level course offers a foundation in fire safety and fire science as well as units on the full range of passive fire protection systems. This is the knowledge that will equip delegates to study towards the IFE Level 3 certificate in passive fire protection qualification.

Learners who obtain the IFE Level 3 Certificate are eligible to apply to join the IFE at Technician level enabling them to gain professional recognition in the global fire sector and use the post nominal TIFireE.
