NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate – Classroom
The NEBOSH fire certificate provides students with the necessary fire safety skills and knowledge to protect people, property and the workplace from fire hazards. By the end of the course, candidates will be able to identify fire risks and implement a range of fire prevention measures.
As part of this course, we also focus on creating an appropriate 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 training can rely on a safer environment for employees and visitors.
This NEBOSH Fire Safety course replaces the NEBOSH National Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management.
The NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate course is perfect for those who have fire safety responsibilities at a low to medium risk workplace (such as an office), including Facilities Managers and Health & Safety Managers/Representatives.
It is also suitable for individuals who wish to build a career as a fire safety adviser.
The NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety will involve a minimum of 28 taught hours and approximately 20 hours of private study and background reading.
When studied through Classroom, Virtual Classroom, or In-house Learning, the course is 4 days.
Our classroom course timings are 09:00-17:00 Monday – Friday.
The NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety consists of 6 elements:
- Element 1- Managing fire safety

- Element 3- Fuel, oxygen and ignition sources and control measures
- Element 4- Fire protection of buildings

The NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate course consists of two assessments:
FSC1- An online, open book examination which candidates have 24 hours to complete.
FSC2- A practical fire risk assessment which candidates are required to complete in their workplace, using frameworks and standards, such as the Home Office fire guidance and PAS79-1:2020. There is no time restriction for the risk assessment, but three hours is recommended to compile a comprehensive risk assessment.
NEBOSH external examiners will evaluate both parts of the assessment.
