The FIA is offering an exclusive new member benefit service with the offer to have one’s CPD certified by the FIA. All included in the cost of one’s membership, so there is no additional cost.
As part of the service, the FIA can host, market and manage all bookings for any of one’s sessions which have been certified by the FIA CPD Certification Center. The FIA will then issue CPD certificates on one’s behalf to the delegates (only if the CPD session is hosted by the FIA).
Data on the attendees will only be shared with the member company delivering the CPD session.

Being a fire-related trade association in Europe means that the FIA has a wealth of technical expertise across the breadth of the fire industry. This means that FIA are able to assess the technical content of one’s CPD sessions and give it FIA stamp of approval or assist with bringing it up to standard.

It benefits the end-user (target audience) as they know that the CPD they are receiving has been checked and certified by the industry body, thereby giving it more value and credibility.
If one is a member and uses the CPD service one no longer has to pay fees to external generic CPD certification bodies who are not experts in the fire industry. This can potentially save one thousands of pounds in unnecessary expenditure.
