We asked Rose Griffin from ESB to give some advice for people considering this job:
|Well in school you should try do a practical subject and get used to working with your hands. Physics is another subject that would be of benefit. It would help in the theory exams that you complete after each of the off the job training modules.|

Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the HETAC or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
The aim of the new four year BEng in Fire Safety Engineering is to deliver engineers who will have both the scientific and practical skills to undertake both prescriptive and performance based fire safety design. Students will initially take core modules in mathematics, fire science, fluids, thermodynamics, building services, construction technology and structural design along with general elements such as CAD, construction economics, law and communications. The student will then progress to fire safety subjects such as human behaviour, fire and reliability modelling, fire structural design and fire engineering techniques. The modules coupled with a work experience placement, projects and a dissertation will provide the graduate engineer from this course with a skill set unique to this country.
