The courses are suitable for all involved in the construction industry from designers and specifiers to contractors and specialist installers, as well as building owner occupiers and enforcement agencies. It is aimed at individuals either directly engaged in passive fire protection or those who need to develop an understanding of the passive fire safety systems such as managers and technical supervisors working in passive fire protection roles such as technical sales staff, designers and fire risk assessors.
