NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety
The NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate is designed for managers and supervisors who are responsible for fire safety legislation and equips candidates with a range of practical fire safety skills.
The NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate (Launched 2021) is designed for managers and supervisors who are responsible for fire safety legislation and equips candidates with a range of practical fire safety skills. This course can be completed in one week.
The NEBOSH Fire Safety qualification 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 the right 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.
Phoenix’s NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate course can be studied via classroom, online or in-house learning.
This NEBOSH Fire Safety course replaces the NEBOSH National Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management.
If you already hold a NEBOSH General Certificate, you can choose to study the older syllabus with our NEBOSH Fire Certificate Conversion course.
