Online course

This is an online course aimed to increase the participants understanding of fire behavior and fire suppression in buildings.

Understanding fire behavior and fire suppression theory

The course delivers a large amount of information in a slow process. The slower pace will increase retention and allow parallel studies from other sources to deepen the understanding. It will expose the participants to the depth of fire behavior and fire suppression knowledge. Going above and beyond most existing courses.

During the course you will also be presented with alternating viewpoints on topics. The participants will be challenged to look at the different perspectives and form their own conclusion.

Study when you want, where you want

The course content is delivered in videos which the participant can watch when it suits them best. But the lectures sometimes ends with an exercise that the participant has to complete within a specified time frame. That time is usually several weeks. The exercise could be to conduct a small training occasion with your department, shift or any other context that fits. Being a teacher is one of the best ways to learn a topic.

Lars Axelsson - The Swedish Firenerd - is teaching firefighters with small scale experiments.
