NEBOSH National Fire Certificate
The NEBOSH National Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management provides a broad understanding of fire safety issues that affect workplaces and enables fire risks to be managed effectively. As well as covering a range of workplace fire hazards and methods of control, it includes the UK legislation relating to the management of fire safety at work. It also enables you to successfully complete risk assessments to ensure the safety of yourself and others.
When you pass this safety training scheme, you can then apply for the Technician Membership of the Institute of Fire Prevention Officers (IFPO) or, if you also have relevant experience, you can join the IFPO Fire Risk Assessors Register. You will continue to develop your career; you may even build on to other qualifications, such as the NEBOSH National General Certificate.
No previous fire safety knowledge is required and it is an excellent course for managers, supervisors, fire risk assessors and those wishing to start a career in fire safety. This safety certificate opens up the doors for careers such as a health and safety manager, a fire consultant, or a safety risk assessor.
The NEBOSH National Fire Certificate covers the main legal requirements for fire safety and risk management in the UK including:
- identification and control of workplace fire hazards
- causes and prevention of fires
health and safety of those around you in the event of fires and explosions
safety risk assessment
- the practical application of this knowledge
This is reflected in the three units that comprise the qualification.
The qualification is divided into three assessed units, each of which is assessed separately. Assessment is by two written examinations (one for each of the Units NGC1 and FC1) and a work-based practical examination (Unit FC2). All units must be completed within 5 years to achieve the full NEBOSH National Fire Certificate.
