This two-day course provides participants who prepare or assess alternative solutions with the skills to avoid significant pitfalls by identifying risks, common misconceptions and required levels of performance. The course will discuss legislative requirements, recommended work practices and the role of fire engineering in the development and assessment of robust alternative solutions.
Participants will have plenty of opportunities to practice new skills in workshop activities. The workshops are based on real-life experiences. The presentations are supported by videos and allow ample time for questions.
The course has been designed to enhance the skills of those participants who are familiar with the Building Code of Australia (BCA/NCC), particularly for Class 2-9 buildings.
