More than 10,000 people have passed the NEBOSH National Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management. The qualification equips students with the necessary skills and knowledge to carry out fire risk assessments across a variety of workplaces. By the end of the course, candidates will be able to identify and implement a range of fire prevention measures.
As part of this course, we also focus on creating the right fire safety culture. This can play a significant role in helping to avoid the damaging and, sometimes, catastrophic losses that can result from fire.
Organisations with staff who have undergone NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management training can rely on a safer environment for employees and visitors.
This NEBOSH National Fire Safety Certificate course can be studied via classroom, online or in-house learning.
We continue to operate classroom courses safely throughout the UK, working with our venues to ensure they adhere to strict Covid-secure measures. We use larger training rooms to enable social distancing, follow government guidelines on hand sanitising, facemask wearing and no longer allow a buffet style food service. A copy of our Covid Classroom Risk Assessment is available on request.

The NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate course consists of three assessments.
Both the classroom and E-learning courses include the following:
Unit FC1 – Candidates must complete a two-hour written examination. NEBOSH external examiners then assess the written papers.
Unit FC2 – Candidates are required to complete a three-hour practical examination at their workplace. The assessment must take place within 14 days of completing the FC1 written examination. The practical examination is moderated externally by NEBOSH and assessed internally by our staff.
NG1 of the National General Certificate, which is assessed via NEBOSH’s Open Book Exam (OBE).
Please note that candidates who have already completed module NG1 within the last five years will only need to complete units FC1 and FC2 to achieve the full NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate. The course fee will be reduced to £895 + VAT for these candidates.
There are no entry requirements, which makes the NEBOSH Certificate an ideal starting point for your health and safety training. Learners must have a suitable standard of English language to understand and articulate the concepts contained in the syllabus.
Our Pass Pledge will cover your additional studies, but you retake the exams at your own cost.
Results are notified by NEBOSH after completing the course. NEBOSH send out the results 10-12 weeks after the exams. Your certificates will arrive after the results have been announced.
