The International Fire Certificate has been designed for managers, supervisors, employee representatives and others to provide an appropriate breath of underpinning knowledge for non-specialists in fire safety to enable them to discharge more effectively their organisational duties or functions with respect to workplace fire safety. 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 course consists of 3 units:
- Training Week 1: Unit IGC1 Management of International Health and Safety
- Training Week 2: Unit IFC1 International Fire Safety and Risk Management
- Workplace practical assessment: Unit FC2 Fire Safety Practical Application
The course consists of 10 days intensive training to give candidates a good grounding in fire safety and risk assessment and prepare candidates for the NEBOSH examinations. Extensive training materials are provided for the course.
The taught element of the course is 69 hours and candidates need to further undertake a minimum of 51 hours private study.
Assessment of this course consists of two written papers (IGC1 and IFC1) and a practical assessment (FC2).
This International Certificate course covers international conventions and recommendations. Other centres in Ireland run the National Certificate which is based on UK legislation. We recommend that prospective delegates satisfy themselves as to which legislation is most relevant to their own/their company’s needs.
Delegates who have already completed Unit 1 (IGC1) as part of the NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety
within the last five years need not re-attend this Unit or re-sit the assessment.
