Overstrand Fire Safety Officer Joe Schoeman, has distinguished himself as an astute and capable professional fire-fighter in a career that spans well over three decades.
In that time Schoeman has augmented his experience and skills set by embarking on further training and development programmes to ensure he is able to render an optimal service to the community.
To that end, the burly fire-fighter boasts a Level 4 Safety Certificate that he obtained through the highly acclaimed and prestigious UK-based Institute of Fire Engineers. What sets him apart is that he was the only South African to achieve this qualification amongst a pool of more than 30 international counterparts who sat for the exam in Cape Town earlier this year.
The qualification will further allow him to apply to the University of Lancashire to undertake a Bachelor of Science Degree in Fire Safety Engineering. Upon completion, Schoeman can then realise his ambition to specialise in either aviation or marine fire safety.
