Fire Protection Engineering Functional Area Qualification Standard
The Fire Protection Engineering FAQS establishes common functional area competency requirements in Sections I and II for all DOE fire protection engineers who provide a wide variety of duties related to fire safety and fire protection engineering including assistance, direction, guidance, oversight, or evaluation of contractor technical activities that could impact the safe operation of DOE’s defense nuclear facilities. Section III also includes competencies for engineers assigned to conduct oversight of specific safety-related fire protection system(s) but perform no other fire protection engineering responsibilities. The technical FAQS has been developed as a tool to assist DOE Program and Field Offices in the development and implementation of the TQP in their organization.
