Inspector and fire protection specialist

The differences between the two positions lie in different powers. The inspector is authorized to carry out activities within the scope of Firewhich relate to the obligations of the owner of a building, construction object or a given area, while a specialist in this field has broader qualifications that entitle him to work also in other areas, for example in a commune or voivodeship.

The validity of the obtained fire protection qualifications is 5 years. After this period, you should refresh your knowledge by participating in the next training.
