The NFPA-APSEI Training & Seminar 2008, organized by APSEI in association with NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), will take place at the Taguspark Congress Center, in Oeiras – Lisbon, on the 5th and 6th of November of 2008. The main concern of this event will be the training and sharing of technical knowledge, having the NFPA rules and regulations as a reference.

Seminars, Training Courses and Exhibition
This will be a dynamic event with several intensive training courses given by foreign NFPA experts; small conferences dedicated to some of the most relevant issues related with Safety and Security in buildings; and an exhibition area for Safety and Security companies, allowing the visitors to have a direct contact with products, services and security systems.

Following the I NFPA Conference that happened in 2006, this will be an initiative that will try to enrich, both professionally and technically, the Portuguese Security and Safety sector, by:

• Providing technical training on a wide range of themes inherent to the Safety and Security activity
• Promoting the most recent knowledge and the best practices in an area of constant technological evolution
• Rendering solutions of project, installation and maintenance systems of Fire Safety and Security solutions
• Increasing the awareness towards a culture of Prevention and Fire Protection

We intend to congregate in the same space professionals and entities with activities related to Safety and Security, mainly the following:

• design and conception
• construction and building inspection
• security equipments – manufacturing, sales and distribution, installation and maintenance
• security consulting
• building owners
