Open registration for ‘External Fire Spread Risk in Tall Building Design’ CPD course

We are pleased to announce the organisation of a new Continuing Professional Development course at The University of Queensland on ‘External Fire Spread Risk in Tall Building Design’.

Wed 24 – Thu 25 January 2018  and  Mon 29 – Wed 31 January 2018 (5-day CPD)

This new CPD course aims at providing practising engineers with the specialist knowledge to address the fire safety strategy of buildings and understand the implications of using ACP products capable of supporting vertical flame spread.

The course uses a combination of lectures, laboratory sessions, and case studies to deliver a comprehensive review of the fire safety strategy, the fire performance of ACPs, and the implications of potentially combustible ACPs to the fire safety strategy of buildings. This course programme has been developed in close collaboration between The University of Queensland, The University of Edinburgh (UK), and The University of Maryland (US).

The audience of this course is experienced fire safety engineer professionals interested in acquiring knowledge to address the fire safety strategy of buildings and the potential implications of using ACPs capable of sustaining vertical flame spread. This course is not an introductory course, and it is only intended for experienced professionals who are familiar with the different aspects of building design and fire safety engineering.

Registration for the course is open until Friday 22 December 2017 (EXTENDED REGISTRATION). Registration does not require payment at the moment of submission.
