5 day course with exams only £745 plus Vat

ELCAS Accredited Course Provider 8616 and Course Code DHS010

The NEBOSH National Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management course covers the management of fire safety including legal requirements and fire risk assessment. 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 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 is required although it should be noted that the assessment includes a requirement to write a short report and delegates must have passed the NEBOSH NGC1 exam with 5 years of the exam date.

Conversion Course Only £745 plus VAT

What Does the Qualification Cover?

The qualification is divided into two units, each of which is assessed separately: 

  • Fire Safety and Risk Management (FC1)

  • Practical Fire Risk Assessment (FC2)

Synopsis of Course Syllabus

​The NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management course syllabus is made up of the following units:

Unit FC1: Fire Safety and Risk Management

  • Element 1: Managing fire safety

  • Element 2: Principles of fire and explosion

  • Element 3: Causes and prevention of fires and explosions

The detailed syllabus guide can be found here.


This accredited NEBOSH qualification is assessed by a two hour exam and a workplace-based practical inspection project. The exam is conducted in the centre where you studied FC1. The practical assignment is completed in the workplace; the practical assignment should take no longer than a day to complete and you will have 10 days from the exam date to return it to us by email.


Those who successfully complete the course and pass the assessments are awarded the official NEBOSH National Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management. Certificates are forwarded to the candidate by us approximately 16 weeks after completion of the course although results are usually issued within 12 weeks.

How are Course Run?

Our NEBOSH courses are run as full-time block courses, usually Monday to Friday 9:00 am until approximately 5:00 pm. Whilst other health and safety training providers may attempt to offer the NEBOSH courses in other formats, such as e-learning, distance learning, one day a week/month etc, in our experience we have consistently found that full-time block courses with exams scheduled afterwards make for a significantly improved likelihood of delegates passing the assessments first time around.

What's Included?

There are NO hidden extras to pay on top of our health and safety training course prices, unlike other providers who charge extra for things like study books and exam fees.

All of our NEBOSH General Certificate courses have the following included in the course cost:

  • The course study book

  • Revision materials

  • All examination fees

  • All certification fees
