Assessment

This qualification has a two-step assessment process which consists of

  • An open book examination: you will be able to complete this at home or in another safe and suitable location where you can concentrate. You will be presented with a scenario that describes a realistic workplace and situation. You will then be asked to carry out a series of tasks using evidence presented in the scenario as well as the underpinning knowledge you have gained through your studies and revision. You will have 24 hours to complete and submit your paper – though you should be able to complete it in 4-5 hours.
    A practical fire risk assessment: the fire risk assessment has been developed around fire risk assessment standards such as the Home Office fire guidance and PAS79-1:2020. The time needed to complete the fire risk assessment is not restricted. We do, however, recommend that you take around three hours to complete all four parts of the assessment. 
    Both assessments will be marked by an external examiner appointed by NEBOSH
