The post-conference seminars offer an exceptional opportunity to optimize your educational experience and expand your knowledge base. Seminar topics include:

  • Introduction to Fire Risk Assessment. This course is intended for fire protection engineers and individuals interested in the application of risk assessment in fire protection design. Those who would benefit from this seminar include fire protection and systems engineers, fire protection risk managers, insurance professionals, quality control engineers, architects and others interested in preparing fire risk assessment reports for application to buildings designs utilizing both performance-based and prescriptive code design methodologies
  • Introduction to Industrial Fire Protection Engineering. Intended for engineers and technicians interested in expanding their knowledge and understanding of the application of fire protection engineering design to industrial facilities. Those involved in the design, operation, emergency response, and risk management of industrial facilities will benefit from this seminar

We hope you’ll join us in Warsaw for this internationally-renowned event showcasing the latest and greatest performance-based code approaches and engineering design methods.
