NEBOSH Fire Safety & Risk Management Certificate


The NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate aims to build on the success of the National General Certificate.  It provides an appropriate breadth of underpinning knowledge for non-specialists in fire safety to enable them to discharge more effectively their organisational duties or functions with respect to workplace fire safety.  The course has been designed for managers, supervisors, employee representatives and others who are required to conduct and review risk assessments and fire preventative and protective measures within the workplace.  

Content:                   The syllabus is divided into two taught units:

NGC1: The Management of Health and Safety

The first unit of the Fire Risk Management Certificate is drawn from the management of health and safety aspects of the NEBOSH National General Certificate and is examined by the management paper from the National General Certificate. Those who have achieved the National General Certificate or passed Paper A1 within the last 5 years will only have to take and pass the second Unit of the Fire Risk Management Certificate, and the Fire Practical Assessment to achieve the new qualification.

The contents of the two Units are:
