The NEBOSH National Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management course covers the management of health and safety and in particular fire safety, including legal requirements. It also includes principles of fire and explosion, causes and prevention of fires, fire protection in buildings and ensuring the safety of people in the event of a fire.
The content is designed to equip those studying it to undertake fire risk assessments in most, low-risk workplaces.
The syllabus is mapped to both the National Occupational Standards for Health and Safety owned by Proskills and the Fire Safety National Occupational Standards owned by SkillsPlus.
No previous health and safety or fire safety knowledge are required although it should be noted that the assessment includes a requirement to write a short report.
