The Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) received a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to convert the four-day Principles of Fire Protection Engineering class—authored by Professors John L. Bryan and James A. Milke, FSFPEs—to a distance-learning format. The goal is to bring the program to a broader, international audience of fire service personnel, building contractors and facility managers. A hundred people will be able to take the course on a pilot basis in late 2004.

Each of the course's 10 sessions will be converted to distance-learning models. The 10 are: Combustion and Ignition Phenomena; Fire Endurance Evaluation; Construction and Structural Features; Materials Applications; Fire Protection Design Evaluation; Life Risk Analysis; Detection and Alarm Systems; Sprinkler System Developments; Design of Water Suppression Systems; and Egress and Exits.

The classroom course will be offered at SFPE's annual meeting and professional conference Sept. 30, 2003.
