International challenges in the Design and Delivery of education in Fire Protection Engineering; Beth Weckman, University of Waterloo

The education of fire protection engineers in British Columbia, in Canada and internationally is an increasing challenge.

In BC the Masters programme in fire protection engineering at UBC had a major impact internationally but closed in 1997 due to lack of mainstream funding.

The UBC symposium programme managed to deliver leading edge courses including Fire Science and Fire Investigation that contributed to the emergence of leading companies in forensic analysis of fires.

Fire Testing and Product Development

The development of new fire products often aligns with existing test standards. When this occurs it is relatively easy- with the right advice- to qualify the product and obtain a listing on successful completion of the testing process. While it should be relatively easy to align products for successful testing this is often not the case and even routine testing can be unsuccessful due to a variety of factors including temperature on the day of the test.
