NEBOSH National Fire Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management


The course covers the management of health and safety with a strong focus on fire safety and the legal requirements around it. It also includes principles of fire and explosion, causes and prevention of fires, fire protection in buildings and ensuring the safety of people in the event of fire.

Essential for complying with UK fire legislation, this course is suited to all those with fire safety responsibilities in the workplace, such as preventing loss of life and property damage. Crucially, the practical element of the course also ensures that participants can carry out, unaided, a fire risk assessment in most low risk workplaces and prepare a recommendations report for management.

The syllabus is mapped to both the National Occupational Standards for Health and Safety owned by ENTO and the Fire Safety NOS owned by SkillsPlus. No previous health and safety or fire safety knowledge is required. Assessment of the course will include writing a short report.

Students will receive a certificate for each unit passed. 

On successful completion of all units making up the NEBOSH National Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management, the student will receive the overall Qualification Parchment.  

This modular structure provides greater flexibility enabling students to study individual units in any order over a 5 year period.
