Optional Pre-Conference Seminars

SFPE will host two seminars prior to the performance based design conference. These seminars each require an additional registration fee and are open to both conference attendees and those not attending.


     Substantiating the Suitability of a Fire Model

       15-16 April (9:00 - 17:00); Instructor Bryan Klein

This two-day course provides an overview of model substantiation process: defining the problem, model selection, verification and validation of the model, and uncertainty analysis. The requirements for each step are covered and explained. This course does not provide instruction on any specific modeling software, method, or tool. (15 PDHs)

     Introduction to Fire Risk Assessment

      15-16 April (9:00 - 17:00); Instructor doc. Ing. Vladimir Mozer, PhD

This two-day course provides an intensive introduction to the SFPE Guide to Fire Risk Assessment, 2nd Edition, which will provide participants with a high-level overview of all the topics included. Participants will spend the first day discussing the four phases of fire risk assessment, their associated steps, and the limitations of fire risk assessment. On the second day, participants will be broken into groups to work through an example fire risk assessment to further their understanding of the concepts discussed on the first day. (15 PDHs)
