FireTech & Safety Management Course as a career option is fast catching up with the students in India. Whereas abroad, Safety is an integral part of most of university programs. It is in fact an index of industrial growth. A rough assessment of the Industrial & Government demand puts the requirement at over 12,000 Safety personnel every year. The stage is similar to the advent of the computer revolution 7 years back. 

Safety Engineering is a field to which all aspects of Science & Technical knowledge pertaining to Fire & Safety is linked. It involves study of subjects that deals with the designing of safer fire resistant equipments and plants; its hazards and control measures in various associated engineering subjects; Managerial functions which aid in managing a fire fighting along with other psychological grooming required to make a self reliant Fire Safety Engineer/Construction Safety Officer/Environment Officer.

Gulf is the biggest fire prone area in the world, because it has the largest storage of oil. Undoubtedly the highest budget of fire prevention and fire protection spent in the world is in the Gulf. They prevent fire by increasing the safety awareness of the people. That translates into thousands of job openings in the field of Safety as Safety Engineers, officers & Supervisors. They also reduce the risk of fire by installing the latest of fire protection systems. As a result the largest installed base of fire protection systems in the world is the Gulf. This translates into thousands of people required in designing, installing, servicing of the fire protection systems.

Anybody looking for a career in computer today is merely adding to the completion, not creating a great opportunity as the initial batches would have. So FireTech & Safety Management Course gives you a 10 years head start as compared to the other fields.

Main advantage of FIRETECH & SAFETY MANAGEMENT over other Technical Fields: 

Undoubtedly SALARY!!! The main attraction of this course is the high salary this course you can fetch in India or abroad especially if you are a 10th pass/undergraduate or graduate The average starting salaries in India that our students are drawing is between 15000/- to 20000/- . Eg. At International airports between 15000/- to 18000/- O.N.G.C 8000/- to 11000/- Shobha Developers 8000/- to 13000/- L& T 15000/- t0 20000/- Mytas Const. 9000/- to 12000/- And abroad thousands of our ex-students are drawing 80000/- plus average salaries.

Why has a career in Safety become such an attractive option???

There are three important reasons for this 1. All of a sudden safety has become very important. This is because of the governmental rules implemented for making safety strict in establishments. The recent adoption of constructional Safety Act by parliament has made appointment of safety officers compulsory at all construction sites. As a result a flood gate of opportunities is opening up in India. Abroad, especially in the Gulf safety is a very strict norm. As a result they require thousands of people there as safety officers. 2. It is a highly paid job. In India the start salary is in the range of 15000/- to 20000/- per month. Abroad it is in the range of Rs.65000/- to Rs.80000/- 3. It is a job with high status. A safety officer is a highly respected person in his office. He works with dignity and it is always a management position.

Is it possible to get such salaries as a fresher?

The salary (you can draw in any field) and the experience (you require to get that salary) in any career greatly depends on the demand & supply gap. There is a huge shortage of trained hands in this field. The booming constructional industry becoming strict with statutory safety rules and norms and acute shortage of trained hands in constructional safety is widening the gap between demand and supply , making it possible for anyone with knowledge in the field from a reputed organization, to latch on to huge salaries and good designations in safety.

What are the opportunities in this field?

This course could mould you into an excellent • Safety Officer • Safety Supervisor • Safety Warden • Safety Checker • Safety Instructor • Safety Auditor • Safety-in Charge • HSE assistant • Safety Engineers • HSE officers • Design Engineer fire protection • Estimation Engineer Fire protection • Fire Alarm Technician • Fire protection technician

Most often a career in Fire and Safety is misunderstood as a career in Fire fighting. Being the leading University of it’s kind, KARNATAKA STATE OPEN UNIVERSITY ( KSOU ) has understood the job market in this field through feedback from it’s huge student databank serving various posts in Safety at reputed organizations across the country and Gulf, through the feedback from its placement team operating nationally and the recruiters constantly targeting it’s campus for new recruits. 

The market is distributed • 80% in safety jobs • 10-15% fire engineering jobs • 5% with fire fighting jobs. 

What is the job of a safety officer?

Ensure the safety of the employees by making them aware of the possible accidents through educative seminars. Make them aware of the usage of various safety gadgets through demonstrative sessions. Making them alert of accidents through safety posters etc. Ensuring that the measures are put into practice by the employees. In short, his job is to ensure that employee gets back home with 10 fingers on his hands and toes. His job is to educate them on the Do’s and Don’ts at the workplace. His job is to manage them and supervise them. He has nothing to do with fire or fire fighting especially if his job is in construction sector.

Are there any courses for Engineers? 

Yes, the course for engineers is Diploma in FireTech Safety Management. As far as Mechanical /Civil /electrical/Chemical/Electronics engineers are concerned this is an added advantage. With a number of engineers flooding the market, engineers are to face a high competition. Safety Diploma opens a new career track with less competition and a much better pay. Get employed as: • Safety Engineers • HSE officers • Design Engineer fire protection • Estimation Engineer Fire protection • Senior positions in Safety.

Whether Practical Training will be given to Candidates or not?

Yes, Practical Training will be given as per the Industry Standards. Considerable importance is given to hands-on training in this program. Candidates need to do ‘On the Job Training’ in various companies for which study center helps the candidates so that their placements can be done appropriately after completion of the course with Practical Training exposure.
