QFES liaised with the University of Queensland (UQ) to develop a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course, “External Fire Spread Risk in Tall Building Design”. Department of Housing and Public Works Page 2 of 2
Professor Jose Torero worked closely with senior QFES fire engineers in formulating and finalising this proposal, which has also been developed in conjunction with international academic institutions to produce world-best practice.
The UQ CPD course will run in January 2018 and is now open to applicants until 8 December 2017.
Details of the CPD course can be found at http://www.civil.uq.edu.au/fire-externalspreadcpd
The Hon. Terry Mackenroth, Independent Chair of the Taskforce, strongly suggests that fire engineers within our membership complete the course, enabling industry to satisfy a growing demand for this level of expertise.
