NEBOSH Fire Certificate

The NEBOSH Fire Safety & Risk Management Certificate (or NEBOSH Fire Certificate for short) is designed for managers, supervisors and any other personnel responsible for fire safety. It aims to give delegates the knowledge to conduct and review fire risk assessments and fire preventative and protective measures within most workplaces.

The NEBOSH Fire Certificate comprises 3 units: Health and Safety Management, Fire Safety and Risk Management & Practical Fire Risk Assessment. Many delegates go on to do this qualification after obtaining the NEBOSH General Certificate, as the NGC1 unit is mandatory for both qualifications, as well as for the NEBOSH Construction Certificate.
