FRA technical courses

Post by stephen1974 » Sat Jul 06, 2019 6:39 am

Any recommendations for FRA courses that focuses more on the technical conformity of a building than on the generalisations of the assessment. I'm coming across a lot of modified structures at the moment and often modified in house or on the cheap. Picture a big industrial unit that has then had walls and floors added in order to make storage spaces and offices. Or big old city buildings that were built long before fire regs were a thing.

I was looking at nebosh but I dont like nebosh. I like practical applications rather that lawyer speak.

Hi Stephen, it's not a FRA course as such, but the FPA offer a great course (3 days) on building regulations using ADB and BS9999. Might be of interest??

Thanks. Certainly along the lines of what im looking for but the price is somewhat excessive at £900.

Hi Stephen, yes - but honestly, I personally felt it was well worth it - the chap that delivered the course was superb and you can ask as many questions as you can (including specifics which I found really useful).

Its more a case of putting that sort of money together from my own pocket than the value of what you get from the course. More a case of cant do rather than wont do.
