CFPA Europe Diploma in Fire Prevention Technical Cycle


PRICE: £3,135.00


The CFPA (Confederation of Fire Protection Associations) Europe Diploma in Fire Prevention was developed to bridge the gap between completing a short fire risk assessment training course and a full-time degree.

This prestigious course is recognised Europe-wide throughout the 26-member countries of the CFPA. If you are looking to further your career in fire risk assessment, this is the course for you.

It is ideal if you are looking to separate yourself from the crowd as a fire risk assessor and/or hold responsibility for improving fire policy and strategy within the workplace. The Technical Cycle must be completed before the Management Cycle. This course is only available with the Fire Protection Association, the only UK member of CFPA Europe.
