The Institution’s examinations are currently held twice a year throughout the world and provide the opportunity for candidates to gain nationally accredited qualifications and to satisfy the academic requirement for membership at different grades.
The examinations are designed to assess underpinning knowledge and understanding at different levels and the resulting qualifications are recognised internationally as evidence of academic achievement in fire engineering.
A new examination – Level 3 Diploma, Fire Investigation – has been added.
