For more information please see our NEBOSH Certificate course brochure.

When you enrol on the NEBOSH National Fire Certificate with RRC, you will also receive a complimentary copy of our RRC Health and Safety Law and Case Law Guide.


NGC1 is the core unit for all of the NEBOSH National Health and Safety Certificates, so to gain a NEBOSH Certificate you need to study NGC1 along with the relevant specialist unit and practical assessment.

If you have been awarded a NEBOSH Certificate in the last 5 years and wish to take another, you will be exempt from NGC1 and can simply 'top up' with the specialist unit and practical assessment to achieve the new award.



Units NGC1 and FC1 of the NEBOSH Fire Certificate are each assessed by one two-hour written examination. Unit FC2 is assessed by a four-hour practical assessment carried out in your workplace.

Exams take place in March, June, September and December. We have exam centres in over 80 countries worldwide and we make all the arrangements for you.

All of our courses contain plenty of exam practice to ensure you are fully prepared for the exam. Many of our trainers are also NEBOSH examiners, so they're well placed to provide advice and guidance throughout your course.
