Fire Science & Fire Investigation is a 4 day course, hosted by The University of Edinburgh's BRE Centre for Fire Safety Engineering.

The course is presented by well-known and highly respected experts in their field, and covers a wide range of topics, including ignition sources, investigation at the fire scene, explosions, wilful fire raising and more, through a combination of lectures and case studies.

A fire investigation may be required for any one of a number of reasons, ranging from a desire to understand the processes and prevent recurrence, to a need to establish liability or detect criminal acts. The course assumes a basic knowledge of the subject and builds on either scientific training or experience from other courses.

Learning Outcomes

The main objective of the course is to show how scientific principles can be used by the fire investigator to interpret a fire scene and determine how a fire started and how it spread. To this end, the course begins with lectures on fire science and compartment fire dynamics which provide the basis for understanding fire behaviour. Case Studies are presented to illustrate how the principles are applied and delegates have the opportunity to examine items recovered from scenes of fire which have evidential value.

Who Should Attend

This well-established and popular course attracts an international audience with delegates from all over the world, including Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australasia. It complements the practical, hands-on courses organised by the Fire Service College and Gardiner Associates and is ideal for Forensic Scientists, Procurators Fiscal, Coroners, Police, Fire Officers from local authority, industry and commerce, and Fire Safety and Security Consultants.
