Course Overview 

Velosi is conducting Certified Fire Protection Specialist (CFPS) Exam Preparation Trainings online.

Firefighters rescue lives, prevent property damage, and defend the places where we live and work. When you decide to become a Certified Fire Protection Specialist, you bring that same commitment to your work. 

The Certified Fire Protection Specialist (CFPS) credential was created in 1971 to recognize, qualified individuals through certification who are dedicated to curtailing fire loss, both physical and financial, and who have acquired a level of professionalism through applied work experiences and related education opportunities, and through successful completion of a certification examination. This certification is a global benchmark and a long-term career advantage. It certifies competence and provides professional recognition to those who work to reduce fire loss, both physical and financial.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, participants will learn to:

  • Present ideologies of human behavior and fire. 
  • Know all factors related to Fire Protection Systems
  • Detection of industrial hazards, fire prevention to protect life and asset.

  • Improve training procedures and programs to educate society how to act safely, reducing the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a blaze.

Course Outline

It is important to remember that while some of the domains correspond both in title and in content to sections of the Fire Protection Handbook (FPH), not all of them do, nor are they meant to be an exact reflection of FPH sections.
