HCIS licensing requirements webinar is now available for fire protection contractors and consultants working in 12 Saudi Arabian sectors

Earlier this month, the NFPA jointly presented an informational webinar with the Saudi Arabian High Commission for Industrial Security (HCIS) on new license renewal requirements that went into effect last month. The webinar was a great collaboration between NFPA and the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) that provides strategic supervision and is the approval body for 12 industries in Saudi.

The one-hour webinar with Q&A covered the new mandate as well as the NFPA training and certification classes that professionals will need to take before they seek license renewals within the petroleum, electricity, petrochemicals, water, industrial services, communications, mining, gas, civil explosives, chemical manufacturing, metal manufacturing, and port sectors.

The webinar is a prime example of the government responsibility that is emphasized in the NFPA Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem™. With more than 1500 registered for the live version of the webinar, the Saudi Arabian workforce demonstrated that it is interested in skilling up and investing in safety – two other critical components of the Ecosystem.

Whether you attended the webinar on the 8th and want to revisit things, or are just learning about this webinar for the first time, be sure to see what the new Saudi Arabian requirements  and NFPA solutions are all about by accessing the archived webinar now.
