‘External Fire Spread Risk in Tall Building Design’ CPD

Registration is now open for the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course at The University of Queensland on ‘External Fire Spread Risk in Tall Building Design’ (2nd edition).

Monday 30 April – Friday 4 May 2018  (5-day CPD course)

This 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 cladding materials 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 insulation materials, and the implications of potentially combustible cladding materials to the fire safety strategy of buildings. This course programme has been developed in close collaboration between The University of Queensland (Australia), 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 cladding materials 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 13 April 2018. Registration does not require payment at the moment of submission.
