What is the NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety?
The NEBOSH fire certificate provides students with the necessary fire safety skills and knowledge to protect people, property and the workplace from fire hazards. By the end of the course, candidates will be able to identify fire risks and implement a range of fire prevention measures.
As part of this course, we also focus on creating an appropriate fire safety culture. This can play a significant role in helping to avoid the damaging and sometimes catastrophic losses that can result from fire. Organisations with staff who have undergone NEBOSH Fire Safety training can rely on a safer environment for employees and visitors.
This NEBOSH Fire Safety course replaces the NEBOSH National Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management.
