CFPA Europe Diploma in Fire Prevention Technical Cycle

Duration: 3 hour(s)

The CFPA Europe Diploma in Fire Prevention was developed to bridge the gap between completing a short fire risk assessment training course and a full time fire safety degree. It is ideal for those looking to separate themselves from the crowd as a Fire Risk Assessor and who either already hold or may ultimately hold responsibility for improving fire policy and strategy within the workplace.

The Technical Cycle is the first of two in order to achieve the full qualification and is completed in three stages. This programme is only available with the Fire Protection Association, the only UK member of CFPA Europe.
