Why take the NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety?

Every organisation within the UK is required by law to properly manage the fire related risks associated with their operations. A fire within your workplace can be catastrophic and a small fire can cause massive amounts of damage, result in temporary closure, or escalate to destroy the entire workplace.

Although there is some overlap, the legislation and processes involved in the management of fire are different to that of health and safety, so having someone within your organisation that understands fire safety is essential.

This course has no entry requirements, and contains all of the information that you need in order to ensure that your organisation is meeting its legal duties, and effectively managing fire safety.

The course is accredited by NEBOSH, the National Examination Board In Occupational Safety and Health, an organisation that are globally recognised for high quality professional qualifications. Holding a NEBOSH qualification in fire safety can help you to get into roles that involve fire safety management, risk assessment, facilities management and can be a solid step on the ladder to consultancy.

The syllabus has been designed by NEBOSH to reflect the modern requirements for fire safety professionals, and provides a solid technical foundation of knowledge which is based on global best practice.

NEBOSH Fire Certificate is an excellent course for managers, supervisors, fire risk assessors and anyone with responsibility for fire safety.

Learning online with our e-learning platform provides a great level of flexibility. There are no set dates to attend, you can learn in smaller chunks or when you have time available, and you can book your exams when you feel that you’re ready to sit them. This means that you can gradually work through the course, in your own time or as part of your work duties.

Open book examination (OBE):

Being an open book exam, you are able to use your course notes, revision materials and the internet to research during the assessment.

The exam should take between 5 and 9 hours to complete over the course of the 24-hour period.

After the examination you are required to attend a 1-on-1 closing interview with one of our tutors to ensure that the work you have submitted is your own. This typically takes between 10 and 15 minutes.

Work-based risk assessment:

The work-based risk assessment FSC2 is completed in person at a suitable premises that you have permission to risk assess (whether your own workplace or other). The practical risk assessment will assess your understanding of how to apply the knowledge gained within the course to a real-life workplace.

The risk assessment should take around 4 hours to complete.

Assessments for this course are booked separately. We strongly advise contacting one of our NEBOSH course advisors to find out more about the process and costs of taking your NEBOSH exams for this course.
