The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) has announced plans for a series of regional CPD seminars around the UK, starting in Manchester on 26 September 2013.

Aimed at improving awareness of passive fire protection, Understanding Passive Fire Protection, will offer an essential overview into all aspects of passive fire protection, its specification, installation, inspection and maintenance. The presentations will cover all aspects of passive fire protection, testing and certification, fire risk assessment and installation.

Delivered by technical experts, the presentations will include an overview of risks in buildings in relation to passive fire protection; and introductions to fire doors, fire-resistant glazing, structural fire protection, compartment wall penetrations and firestopping.

The events are suitable for anyone who is responsible for specifying or inspecting passive fire protection or those appointing trades that could cause damage to existing fire protection in the process of their work. They should particularly appeal to practising Fire Risk Assessors, Responsible Persons, Local Authorities, Facilities Managers, Building Control, and Care Home Providers.
