General Manager Message 

Over time we have learned that the fundamental of fire and safety principles lies in the prevention of fire events, safety associated risk and overall management of their impacts in the aftermath. And more importantly, we need to continuously explore the undergoing principle which requires us to look beyond and put focus on the performance of those who are entrusted with the responsibilities to ensure the well-being of all vested stakeholder, namely the human capital component of the field. 

Helming the IIFS, I believe and hope that the delivery of our related trainings will contribute greatly to quality performance of the human capital for overall safe and secure environment of the industry and community; with emphasis on commitment to serve the best and empowerment of individuals. Make no mistake, despite the advancement of technology in today’s era, I am still a proponent who believes that man still trumps machines as we have the ability to imagine, anticipate, feel, and judge changing situations, which allows them to shift from short-term to long-term concerns. Side by side, man and efficient use of technology are criteria which are very much needed in assessing situations which involve fire and safety. 

IIFS’s philosophy is to provide quality skills trainings for all our courses, which are simultaneously aligned with certification and accreditation of international bodies and standards for industry best practices. And, I believe that working as a team is not just a main component in ensuring safety, but also a culture I am infusing within IIFS. To deliver the best and to produce the best.
