Instructors Biography:

Don Falconer founded Falconer Engineering and Testing in 2008 to provide Fire Protection Engineering Services and best apply his 39+ years of experience in fire protection and building construction.

Don’s career began in 1978 at Underwriters’ Laboratories of Canada (ULC) where he gained expertise in testing and certifying construction materials–most notably full-scale fire testing of building constructions. At ULC he also had opportunity to participate in the fire safety standards and building codes development process.

Don spent the next 18 ••• years as Technical Manager with A/D Fire Protection Systems (now part of the Carboline Company), a leading manufacturer of sprayed fire-resistive materials, intumescent fire-resistive coatings for structural steel and fire stop systems. Don managed R&D, testing and certification, and the company’s technical/marketing support activities.

Don continues to participate actively with standards writing and industry organizations in order to always be up-to-date to best serve his clients, and to give back out of genuine concern for life safety.
