Health and safety awarding bodies NEBOSH has launched a new globally relevant fire safety qualification which can be completed in just one week
The NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety helps learners develop practical fire safety skills that can be used to protect people, buildings and business.
The syllabus covers a broad range of topics including the principles of fire and explosion, how to identify fire hazards in the workplace and the controls that can be put in place to reduce risk. The qualification, which is suitable for low to medium risk workplaces, offers businesses a great way to build in-house fire safety expertise.
Dee Arp, NEBOSH chief operating officer, said, “The qualification’s content and assessment aim to help learners gain practical skills and knowledge. The two-part assessment consists of an open book examination and fire risk assessment practical. Both allow learners to practice what they have learnt so they can immediately make a positive contribution to fire safety in their workplace.”
The NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety will replace both the current UK and International NEBOSH Certificates in Fire Safety and Risk Management. It can be studied from 1 May 2021 through NEBOSH’s global network of accredited learning partners.
