Programme Highlights

The HKIE Fire Division CPD Training Course 2023 consists of six lectures covering the six domains of fire engineering with case studies. It is suitable for professional engineers ranging from graduate engineers to veterans who are interested to join the Fire Discipline of the HKIE. It covers a wide range of knowledge from building design, statutory submission to facility management. We are honored to have eminent academics, experienced professionals, senior consultants and government officials who possess substantial practical experience to introduce concepts of fire science, human psychology and physiology, active fire protection systems analysis, passive fire protection systems analysis, law, regulations and standards, and fire risk management.

The course is specially tailored for a full spectrum of fire engineering-related professionals such as consultants, surveyors, architect, project managers, facility managers and engineers of other disciplines. They may interact frequently with fire engineers or have been practicing fire engineering works and would like to better equip themselves by taking a closer look at the doctrines of Fire Engineers or the latest fire engineering knowledge through case studies.
