Every year, across the UK, over a thousand lives are lost, and many more people are seriously injured as a result of fires in non-domestic premises. Besides the human risk, the costs incurred to businesses due to fire, whether through property damage, fines, compensation, or insurance premiums are often irretrievable.
Whilst we consider equipping today’s firefighters and other emergency responders with the best possible skills and training as incredibly vital to ensuring the safety, fire protection and prevention to all, anyone who is an employer, or has control over a workplace, has a responsibility under the UK fire safety legislation to help prevent fires and reduce risk to those in their premises, which we view as equally crucial.
We are the leading provider of fire sector qualifications in the UK, and following the acquisition of Industry Qualifications in March 2020, we are pleased to announce our expanded portfolio of fire safety qualifications are now available.
When providing guidance on fire safety, with the consequences of getting it wrong so serious, it is imperative that the person delivering it has the competence to do so. Designed by sector experts, our fit-for-purpose qualifications are developed to national standards, providing assurance that learners feel confident they have the latest knowledge and best practice to demonstrate their capability and further the improvement of fire protection and prevention outcomes.
Our fire safety qualifications cover a broad range of roles and levels of environments that support the UK’s regulation agenda. From basic awareness training, for individuals who intend to have responsibility for fire safety in the workplace, through to more specific and complex Fire Auditor and Fire Inspector qualifications.
Developed to not only meet the needs of the sector but offer centres more flexibility in the provision they deliver, our comprehensive suite allows centres to develop programmes of learning which are relevant to individual learner’s requirements, providing them with the knowledge and skills they need to further their career, no matter what stage they are at, or pathway they choose.
