The NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety Course Overview

The NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety is a globally relevant fire safety qualification that you can complete in just one week. This qualification can help you protect people, property, and ultimately your business from the harm a fire can cause.

This relevant and respected fire safety qualification will help you to:

  • Gain a solid technical foundation to build on through practical application and experience
  • Positively influence fire safety behaviors and improve fire safety culture
  • Learn fire safety techniques that are based on global best practice
  • Provide valuable in-house fire safety expertise for your workplace
  • Advance your career by gaining specialist fire safety knowledge
  • Avoid the damaging and sometimes catastrophic losses that result from fire


To complete this qualification, it’s advisable to schedule at least 28 hours of learning sessions and around 20 hours of studying on your own, including reading related materials.

This qualification involves two assessments:

1. Open Book Exam: You can do this at home or another suitable quiet space. You’ll receive a scenario about a workplace situation and then asked to complete tasks using the scenario and your knowledge from your studies. You have 24 hours to finish, but typically takes 4-5 hours.

2. Practical Fire Risk Assessment: This assessment aligns with fire risk assessment standards like Home Office fire guidance and PAS79-1:2020. There’s no time limit, but we recommend around three hours to complete all four parts for a thorough assessment.

NEBOSH examiners will review both assessments.

Delegates are awarded the NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety upon successful completion.

Registration for exams closes 3-weeks prior to the exam date.
