This short course is for anyone who has to carry out fire risk assessments in the workplace. It provides a solid understanding of the risk assessment process, in addition to the skills required to undertake a suitable and sufficient risk assessment.


Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, the responsibility for fire risk assessment in any workplace lies with the accountable ‘responsible person'.

The British Safety Council Certificate in Fire Risk Assessment course includes interactive e-Learning exercises, a downloadable study text and knowledge tests. It provides this ‘responsible person’ with knowledge and understanding of the fire risk assessment process and the skills required to undertake a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment.

On completion of the course, delegates will:

  • Understand the importance of fire risk assessments
  • Understand the principles of controlling the risks from fire
  • Understand how a fire risk assessment is undertaken.

Learning with the British Safety Council will enable delegates to benefit from our extensive experience in health, safety and environmental management, acquired over the last 60 years. During this time, we’ve educated people from all over the world and have developed expert tuition methods, using the most modern teaching techniques.


The British Safety Council Certificate in Fire Risk Assessment is assessed by means of an online exam. This relates directly to the delegate’s workplace and tests the application of learning in a practical context.

You have six weeks to complete the course and assessments once enrolled. The enrolment period begins once a learner is registered in the system, not on purchase

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
