Tall Building Fire Safety

The FIA are delighted to announce their collaboration with Tall Building Fire Safety, bringing two new specialised courses on fire safety in tall and high-risk buildings.

These two courses are:  

Tall Building Fire Safety Management (Mixed and Business use)

This course is designed for anyone tasked with the fire safety management of a tall building with mixed use (residential/office/retail).

Developed in 2004, over 500 delegates have undertaken the course and it has become a de-facto competency requirement for many Tall Buildings in the UK.

Tall Building Fire Safety Network is a fully approved training centre for Skills for Justice, and the course is recognised by the institution of fire engineers.

Course outline:

The 5-day intensive programme covers all aspects of the management process. Each day is themed starting with prevention, going onto detection and alarm, means of escape, fire containment and finishing with firefighting and BCP. Building fire case studies, along with the most common ignition hazards are reviewed and analysed.

Who it’s for:

This course is ideal for Tall Building Managers, supervisors, security managers, facility managers, health and safety managers, insurance surveyors, fire risk assessors, firefighters, fire and life safety system maintainers and anyone who needs to understand the building ‘fire strategy’.

Learning outcomes (what do they get including CPD hrs):

  • Skills for Justice approved qualification
  • Recognised qualification with the Institution of fire engineers
  • 30 hours of CPD
