    Hello Friends,

    I would like to share with you about Fire Protection. Fire protection is the study and practice of mitigating the unwanted effects of fires. The risk of fire is one of the greatest threats to health and safety, property and the delivery of essential services. Industry, government, and indeed everyone, share in the responsibility of protecting Canadians from the consequences of fire. Fire Protection Services promotes a proactive approach to fire safety and prevention and provides a range of services to clients occupying federal buildings. These services are aimed at minimizing risks to life and property, and preserving essential government services offered to all.

    The Fire Protection program is designed to provide students with a career ladder educational opportunity beginning with certificates and culminating with a bachelor of science concentration in fire science. The educational process begins with certificates in fire suppression, company officer, hazardous materials, and fire inspection/investigation. These certificates prepare students to perform basic job functions in fire protection.

    It involves the study of the behaviour, compartmentalization, suppression and investigation of fire and its related emergencies, as well as the research and development, production, testing and application of mitigating systems. In structures, be they land-based, offshore or even ships, the owners and operators are responsible to maintain their facilities in accordance with a design-basis that is rooted in laws, including the local building code and fire code, which are enforced by the Authority Having Jurisdiction. Buildings must be constructed in accordance with the version of the building code that is in effect when an application for a building permit is made.


    Quizzes – All quizzes must be passed with a 100% to proceed forward to the next lesson.

    Final Exam- Final Exam must be passed with a 70% to pass the course. The final exam can be taken three times if necessary.
