NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Certificate - Conversion

Nebosh Fire Safety Courses are available in London, Birmingham, Manchester and cities across the UK.

The NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate has been designed for managers, supervisors, employee representatives and those embarking on roles with fire safety responsibility. The course aims to equip holders to contribute to the conduct and review of fire risk assessments and fire preventive and protective measures within most workplaces.

The Conversion course is aimed at those who already hold the NGC1 Management of Health & Safety Certificate (NGC1 is a module within the National General Certificate).

The syllabus is based on National Occupational Standards in Fire Safety at level 3, which has common units with the Emergency Fire Services National Occupational Standards. Therefore the NEBOSH Fire Risk Management Certificate may also be of benefit to fire service personnel developing their underpinning knowledge as part of the Integrated Personal Development System.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into effect on October 2006 and emphasised the need for management of fire safety risks within the workplace.

The NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate consists of three units, each separately assessed:
