Full Course description

What does the course cover?

Current Fire Legislation puts the onus on employers as the responsible person to assess and respond to fire safety risks. The NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management will help organisations to meet their responsibilities under this legislation.

This five day course is open to holders of NEBOSH Unit NGC1. This will have been achieved either by completing the NEBOSH National General Certificate, the NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health, the NEBOSH National Diploma Part 1 or 2 or Unit A of the NEBOSH National Diploma within the last five years. If you do not possess any of the above qualifications, please contact the Health and Safety Admin Team at WATA for advice on achieving this certificate. Candidates are required to complete an application form to confirm eligibility.

The course covers Units FC1 & FC2, entitled “Fire Safety and Risk Management” and includes:

• Principles of fire and explosions, their causes and methods of prevention

• Principles of ‘means of escape’ considering the contributory factors of the building and its contents/usage

• Fire Risk assessments process

• Legislation relevant to fire

Examination, FC1, held on the last day of the course. A practical assessment (FC2) must be completed at your workplace and returned to WATA within 7 days of the end of the course. Please contact WATA if you need assistance with this.

NEBOSH now require all delegates to provide photo ID (eg. passport, driving licence, National ID Card) in order to sit the exam. Delegates who do not produce photo ID will not be allowed to sit the exam.

Delegates attending NEBOSH training should familiarise themselves with the NEBOSH General Student Terms and Conditions, a copy of which can be found in the Student Section of the NEBOSH website: www.nebosh.org.uk

Who is the course suitable for?

Managers and supervisory staff who need to ensure that their organisation meets its responsibilities under fire safety legislation. This qualification should equip holders to carry out fire risk assessments of most low risk workplaces and identify the range of fire protective and preventive measures required. It is therefore also suitable for people moving into fire adviser roles. In-company courses by arrangement.
