The course is given once in the autumn in Solna (english) and once in the spring in Flemmingsberg (swedish).

Coursedate: October 25:th 2018 in room Atrium at Campus Solna, kl 09:00 - 16:00. See invitation with more details.


Fire safety training has been procured in order to be able to offer the number of courses needed to meet KI’s needs. From autumn 2017, the Environment and Security Unit has centrally organized several courses that can be booked for you as a KI employee. You are responsible for your own booking/cancellation of the course date for "Basic Fire Education", paid by the Environment and Security Unit. 

Information security

This basic online training course gives all personnel/co-workers an understanding of the basics of information security. It provides knowledge that is also very applicable outside work. The course is intended for all personnel/co-workers at KI and should also be used as an introduction for new employees and consultants.
