The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP)

Professional fire safety training and guidance

Fire safety is an important aspect in the management of the education estate and passive fire protection (PFP) is a key component of any fire safety strategy.

PFP is built into the structure of buildings to ensure they do not collapse and to prevent the spread of smoke and fire, allowing time for occupants to escape. PFP includes fire doors, walls, protection to the structural frame and fire-stopping.

The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) offers a range of training courses and guidance documents to assist specifiers, building owners and installers.

The ASFP Online Introduction to Passive Fire Protection provides a basic introduction to PFP and its role in the overall fire strategy of a building, covering key elements of design, installation and inspection. It offers an excellent insight into the vital role that such systems play.

The ASFP Foundation Courses in Passive Fire Protection offer modules in fire science and different forms of passive fire protection, leading towards Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications provided by the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE) and recognised by regulators Ofqual and CCEA.

The ASFP is holding a CPD seminar in central London on 23 October 2019. The seminar aims to improve awareness of PFP and help delegates to understand the vital role of compartmentation in maintaining fire safety in buildings.
