About The Course

The main objective of the Fire Risks Assessors (FRA) accreditation course is to raise the profile and competency of risk engineers, fire surveyors, fire assessors and fire auditors in the Insurance Industry. Participants who complete the course will be recognised as qualified Fire Risks Assessors and listed on the Institution of Fire Engineers (UK) Malaysia Branch’s (IFEM) website for registrants of FRA. All registrants of FRA will have an opportunity to join IFE as a member (of suitable grade) with an opportunity to be registered as an Engineering Technician of The UK Engineering Council.

A competent Fire Risks Assessor will be able to conduct professional risks assessment of buildings under audit with in-depth knowledge learnt through the course. A FRA will be competent to produce a comprehensive risks assessment report by highlighting the risks of assets under review for loss prevention and business continuity.

A proper risks assessment will enable building owners to exercise mitigation measures in eradicating fire risks and ensuring safety for all occupants and visitors through risks management recommendations. The value of having competent FRAs in the insurance industry will be in terms of compensation pay out.
