Virtual NEBOSH Fire Certificate Online Course

Due to extraordinary circumstances impacting the regular provision of health and safety training the NEBOSH Fire Certificate course can now be studied in ‘virtual trainer’ format in the comfort of your own home or workplace.

Using Video Technology

It is permitted to deliver the NEBOSH course remotely via video technology solution. The training will follow the same curriculum as the classroom course and deliver the same standard of training meeting all examination body rules. Minimum delegate numbers for the course may be reduced for the period the training provision is in place. To manage remote training effectively, the maximum number of delegates allowed may also be reduced.



Each virtual NEBOSH Fire Certificate course listed on our website includes a location including town/city, county and postcode, however it is important to note that all virtual courses can be attended from anywhere and therefore please ignore the location information. Location data is currently a system requirement to publish virtual courses on our website. If these courses continue beyond the current COVID-19 lockdown our systems will be developed further.
