This module will cover the principles of fire engineering. It will look at various principles of Fire Engineering giving a great insight into this exciting field. It also looks at numerous case studies which highlight how Fire Engineering can be applied to resolve building design issues.

I cannot rate the content highly enough. I was looking for a course to introduce me to the Principles of Fire Engineering and this course did that. I would recommend this course to anyone involved in Fire Risk Assessment or a Fire Safety advisory role to improve your knowledge and therefore your competence. Nick Butler
