The NEBOSH Fire Certificate is a widely respected qualification, which meets the requirements for Technician Membership of IOSH and Associate Membership of IIRSM.
The NEBOSH International Fire Certificate course is split into three units of study, each of which is assessed separately:
Unit IGC1: Management of International Health and Safety (also part of NEBOSH IGC)
Unit IFC1: Fire Safety and Risk Management
Unit IFC2: Workplace-Based Practical Assessment (Fire Risk Assessment)
All units must be completed within 5 years to achieve the full NEBOSH Fire Certificate qualification.
IGC1 is the core unit for all of the NEBOSH International Health and Safety Certificates, so to gain a NEBOSH Certificate you need to study IGC1 along with the relevant specialist unit and practical assessment.
If the individual has been awarded a NEBOSH International General Certificate in the last 5 years and opts to take another, he/she will be exempt from IGC1 and can simply ‘top up’ with the specialist unit and practical assessment to achieve the new award.
Units IGC1 and IFC1 of the NEBOSH Fire Certificate are each assessed by one two-hour written examinations separately. Unit IFC2 is assessed by a practical assessment carried out in your own workplace.
