A glance at the ASFP’s new training dates

The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) has rolled out fresh dates for its foundational course in passive fire protection at both Level 2 and Level 3.

The course details can be found here.

Level 3 and Level 2 courses to commence in different locations

The Level 3 course, spanning 7 days and based in a classroom setting, will commence on 15 August in Manchester; 17 August in Reading; and 7 September in Dublin.

The 4-day Level 2 courses will kick-off in Coventry from 1 September; and Dublin starting 7 September.

Exam preparation and the significance of passive fire protection

Additionally, revision courses aimed at helping learners gear up for the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE) exams are scheduled for 2 October in Coventry and 5 October in Dublin.

The courses offer a strong foundation in fire safety and fire science, in addition to modules on different types of passive fire protection.

Learners then have the opportunity to work towards obtaining Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications from the IFE, an internationally acclaimed awarding organisation.

It’s worth noting that these are the sole passive fire protection qualifications in the UK and Ireland endorsed by Ofqual, the regulators.

Moreover, learners achieving the IFE Level 3 Certificate can apply to join the IFE at Technician grade, thus gaining global professional recognition in the fire sector and the post nominal TIFireE.

Who is the course suited for?

The training is appropriate for everyone involved in the construction industry, ranging from designers, specifiers, contractors, to specialist installers.

The courses are also relevant for building owner occupiers, fire risk assessors, and enforcement agencies.

Such courses are in high demand, with a majority of students continuing their studies to sit for the IFE examinations, held in March and October each year.

These qualifications allow delegates to formally exhibit their knowledge and experience.

For those who are unable to attend the classroom-based course dates or prefer individual study, the Level 2 and 3 courses are also accessible online through a unique interactive learning platform.

This platform utilises adaptive learning techniques to tailor teaching to each individual’s skills, knowledge, experience, and behaviours, ensuring each learner attains exceptional levels of understanding and proficiency.
