This course has been designed to give you a greater understanding of passive fire protection and follows on from the level 2 course. It covers all the fundamental principles but goes into more depth in certain areas.

  • Important aspects of  passive fire protection
  • Elements of a cladding system

  • Building regulations, approved documents and passive fire protection



I just received confirmation late last week that I passed the IFE Level 2 and Level 3 Passive Fire Protection exams!  I didn’t do much additional reading but worked through your videos and sample papers – they were amazing and covered everything that came up on the exams!
