Studying for an Eastwood Park degree: Alison's experience
We are continuing to develop a new fire portfolio, which includes the latest legislative guidelines.
Our new portfolio of fire safety courses provides a structured hierarchy of specialist fire training:
Introduction to the basic principles (HTM 05-01)
Specifically intended for those new to fire safety, or with limited fire safety experience.
Gain a thorough understanding of the first principles and the fundamental concepts of fire protection and fire safety. An invaluable introduction to fire safety and a worthwhile refresh of the essential knowledge required by the fire safety advisor.
Fire Safety Management (HTM 05-01)
An in-depth review of the role of the Fire Safety Manager and the appropriate fire safety management system within the healthcare environment. Develop your understanding, through close examination of the guidance contained in HTM 05-01, in the context of the legislative framework and the governance arrangements appropriate for an NHS Trust.
Firecode for healthcare premises (HTM 05-02)
This course examines the application of HTM 05-02 to healthcare premises. It includes an in-depth examination of the guidance recommendations, their intended application and the fire safety concepts underpinning the provision of fire safety in the modern healthcare environment. Building on prior fire safety knowledge, this module utilises increasingly complex practical exercises providing learners with first-hand experience in the application of Firecode guidance enhancing their understanding. Although primarily focussed on the guidance contained in HTM 05-02, some elements of HTM 05-03 are also included in the learning experience.
Fire risk assessment for healthcare premises (HTM 05-02)
Building on the knowledge and experience gained in the previous courses this module examines the concepts of fire risk assessment and fire risk management. With a specific focus on HTM 05-03 Part K and other fire risk assessment guidance, this training is intended for those likely to be undertaking or auditing fire risk assessments in healthcare premises. Delegates are guided in the application of their previously gained understanding of fire safety and Firecode guidance culminating in a practical fire risk assessment.
