The Graduate Certificate in Fire Safety Engineering is an 8-unit programme Graduate Certificate that has been developed with (and tailored to) the needs of the Australian Fire Services. The three-week intensive programme provides the opportunity for professionals in fire safety to broaden their knowledge, skills and practice – and to develop their careers.

The Graduate Certificate introduces core concepts in the assessment and delivery of a fire safety strategy, together with emerging directions and innovative practices. Students also complete an “in work” project that allows them to develop and apply their new knowledge and skills in a practical environment and under the mentorship of academic staff.
