NEBOSH Fire Certificate

In 2021 the NEBOSH Fire Certificate course has been officially renamed to NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety. The official course title used to be NEBOSH National Certificate in Fire Safety & Risk Management. The training course has and is in most cases still referred to as the NEBOSH Fire Certificate. The qualification and training is designed for managers, supervisors, personnel responsible for fire safety and aims to equip holders to contribute to the conduct and review of fire risk assessments and fire preventative and protective measures within most workplaces. The training course can be completed in one week.

What Else Has Changed?

The NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety course now consists of 2 stand-alone modules (FSC1 & FSC2). The NGC1 module of the NEBOSH General Certificate in Occupational Health & Safety is no longer part of this fire safety qualification. The FSC1 unit is an online open book exam available on set dates throughout the year.
