NEBOSH Fire and Risk Management Certificate

The NEBOSH National Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management is a qualification for those with fire safety responsibilities in the workplace.



Learning agreement

You are about to embark on a challenging programme of study, one which should enhance your knowledge and understanding of health and safety management as well as your professional status. Be under no misunderstanding, this is an intense learning program, a program that requires your ultimate commitment to learning both in and out of the classroom.  You will be asked to sign a learning agreement on day one of the course, which commits you to full participation towards your learning.


£720 plus VAT (£864 Total Cost) without NG1

Please enquire for costs for NG1 should you require. (This includes exams and all associated costs)

Course Content

  • Understand the legal framework relating to fire and health & safety
  • Appreciate the purpose and procedures of investigating fires in the workplace
  • Outline the principles behind ignition and spread of fire and explosion in work premises
  • Identify the causes of fire and explosion and outline appropriate control measures to minimise fire risks
  • Advise on the means of fire protection and prevention of fire spread within buildings
  • Advise on the development and maintenance of a fire evacuation procedure
  • Use a simple fire risk assessment technique to determine risk levels and assess the adequacy of controls

Managers and supervisory staff who need to ensure that their organisation meets its responsibilities under fire safety legislation. Courses leading to this qualification should equip holders to carry out fire risk assessments of most low risk workplaces and identify the range of fire protective and preventative measures required. It is therefore also suitable for people moving into fire safety adviser roles.

The course is assessed by one unit written exam which is held on a separate day from the course, in addition each candidate is required to submit a hand written practical assessment which is introduced and issued during the course.

We provide our NEBOSH Fire and Risk Management certificate as a five day block course with the exam after the 5 day instruction making our course 6 days in total.

Typical fees for open courses are £720 plus VAT per person at our training rooms in Rainham. However, this can vary for in-house courses.

We run open courses regularly in our Training Centre in Rainham, Kent.

It pays to be selective when booking training courses because not all training providers are what they appear to be. When booking a NEBOSH Fire Course you need to feel assured that your training provider is fully accredited to provide that training and is not then going to sub-contract the work. Lighthouse Safety Training are fully accredited by NEBOSH to provide the NEBOSH Fire course and proof of that accreditation can be seen at our accreditation page.


A brilliant course. lots of information both from Rick and others that help understand more about fire.
