  • ASFP and IFE sign MOU
    In 2017, the Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) and Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to support their collaboration with the aim of creating a partnership of fire industry bodies to better serve the professional needs of members, the industry and society. The ASFP and the IFE seek to achieve this common commitment by improving the knowledge and professionalism of members through the provision of new qualifications which are jointly developed. The qualifications will be awarded by the IFE; supported by learning materials provided by ASFP; and jointly monitored by both partners. Both partners will develop plans to secure the success of the collaboration and will meet regularly to oversee the successful implementation and delivery of the new qualifications.
