Several Royal Decrees have recently been approved by the Council of Ministers, one of them specific for the qualification of fire protection.
The Ministry of Education and Vocational Training, within the Plan for the Modernization of Vocational Training, has specified a National Catalog of Professional Qualifications to respond to the most demanded professional profiles, establishing new professional qualifications, among which is that of PCI: Assembly and maintenance of fire protection installations.
Tecnifuego, together with a working group of companies in the sector, and Cepreven, have collaborated in making this Qualification a reality.
