The ASFP also offers an online Introduction to Passive Fire Protection course designed to equip new entrants to the sector with a basic knowledge of passive fire protection and its role in the overall fire strategy of a building.
Consisting of 13 short online videos, each of them around ten-to-15 minutes in length, the course is designed to provide a broad understanding of the subject of passive fire protection. Learners will gain knowledge of all types of passive fire protection systems. There are also modules on fire safety in buildings, human behaviour in fire, fire testing, contractor responsibilities and the role of active fire protection.
Successful completion of the e-Learning course will enable delegates to better understand the role of the various fire safety measures in the built environment, and particularly so passive fire protection. On completion of an online multiple-choice test, learners receive confirmation of completion and are awarded three hours of Continuing Professional Development.
