Certificate in Fire Safety
Applications are open for September 2024.
The programme aims to afford advanced experience and training to fulfil, in part, the onerous and challenging roles, duties and responsibilities associated with a limited range of Built Environment Regulations in the Irish Construction Industry
This certificate is designed for a multidisciplinary cohort across the built environment disciplines e.g. Architecture, Engineering, Building Surveying, Architectural Technology, and Construction Management, among others. A multi-disciplinary cohort will be beneficial to the programme as it will provide a cross-pollination of ideas, shared experiences and appreciation for each other’s roles and responsibilities in the Built Environment.
The programme is designed to meet the postgraduate and continuing professional development needs of these disciplines, to develop competence in the specialist area of Fire Safety by facilitating knowledge gained through training and applied experience.
It will be particularly beneficial to new entrant graduates who have recently entered the work force in the last one to three years. It will also be beneficial to lifelong learners and more experienced professionals as Continuing Professional Development, up-skilling, retraining, and as a refresher course. Furthermore, the programme can be undertaken on a module-by-module basis, if so desired, by accumulating credits.
It will also be possible to complete the Certificate and/or Postgraduate Diploma and/or MSc in Built Environment Regulation at some point in the future. This flexibility is designed to accommodate an adult working population. The difference between this qualification and the Masters, Postgraduate Diploma, and Certificate in Built Environment Regulation is that there is no research capstone module requirement and only Fire Safety Technical Guidance Documents, along with the relevant Irish and/or British Standards for Fire Safety are covered in the syllabus.
Students take this course as part-time (1 year).
