Course description

NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management (New Syllabus delivered from 01 May 2021)

The NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate Course is designed to equip holders to help their organisations to meet their legal duties regarding fire safety. 

The course covers the principles of fire and explosion, causes and prevention of fires, fire protection in buildings and ensuring the safety of people in the event of a fire.

***On 01 March 2021, NEBOSH announced the launch of a new Fire Safety qualification syllabus.  The NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate will replace both the current UK and International NEBOSH Certificates in Fire Safety and Risk Management.  It can be studied from 1 May 2021. The new qualification includes an open book examination and a practical fire risk assessment.

On the completion of the current course you will have:

  • An understanding of how to undertake fire risk assessments in most, low-risk workplaces.
  • A sound understanding of the principles of fire and explosion, causes and prevention of fires, fire protection in buildings and ensuring the safety of people in the event of a fire.
  • The practical element of the course also ensures that you can carry out, unaided, a fire risk assessment of a low-risk workplace.
  • Ability to prepare a recommendations report for management.
  • The opportunity for those that have already achieved NGC1 within the last five years to simply take other units to achieve additional NEBOSH qualifications.

Astutis don't have any planned Classroom courses for the NEBOSH Fire Safety Course at present due to COVID Restrictions, but we have many open virtual courses available.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate is suitable for:

  • Employees with fire safety responsibilities in the workplace.
  • Employees tasked with carrying out fire risk assessments and preventing loss of life and property.
  • Managers and supervisory staff who need to ensure that their organisation meets its responsibilities under fire safety legislation.

Prior to 01 May 2021, you must have successfully completed the NEBOSH NGC1 exam in the past 5 years to receive the full NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate. From 01 May 2021, the new qualification includes an open book examination and a practical fire risk assessment. You no longer need to sit the NEBOSH NG1 exam.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

The NEBOSH National Fire Safety Certificate sits at Level 6 in the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework, equivalent to Level 3 on the NQF/QCF in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The qualification meets the academic requirements to apply for Technician membership (TechIOSH) of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), and Associate membership (AIIRSM) of the International Institute of Risk and Safety.
