The Graduate Certificate in Fire Safety Engineering introduces professionals to fire safety engineering principles and fire safety engineering. It is designed for professionals wishing to become familiar with the concept of fire safety solutions, where the performance based Building Code of Australia and the Fire Engineering Guidelines have been used.
This is one of only two Graduate Certificate courses available in this area in Australia. The Graduate Certificate in Fire Safety Engineering at Western Sydney University has a 14 year history, and takes a balanced approach to training students in fundamental knowledge and problem solving skills. You will gain a sound understanding of building regulations, fire dynamics, human behaviour and risk assessment.
The course is taught by leading industry experts as well as academics at the University. It is a distance learning course, with flexible modes offered to cater for your needs.
Trained fire safety engineering graduates are in high demand in the building industry. This course sets a path to the next two levels, namely the Graduate Diploma and Master of Fire Safety Engineering. Students may be exposed to more employment opportunities while enrolled in the course.
