Course Overview

This International Fire Certificate has been designed for managers, supervisors and employee representatives to provide an appropriate breadth of underpinning knowledge for non-specialists in fire safety.

It is intended to enable them to discharge their organisational duties regarding workplace safety more effectively. It also aims to equip holders to contribute to the conduct and review of fire risk assessments and preventative and protective measures within most low-risk workplaces, in accordance with International and European best practice conventions.


The examinations consist of two 2-hour written papers and a practical assessment. Each written paper consists of one 'long-answer' question and ten 'short-answer' questions. All questions are compulsory. The practical assessment consists of carrying out a risk assessment of a workplace and preparing a short report.

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 ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
