The Construction Fire Risk Assessment Course has been recognised by the IFSM and the SQA have confirmed that it meets the SCQF academic level 7 with 5 credit points. CHSG is also an Approved Centre for the IFSM.

The course is a specialist five-day course, undertaken on a frequency of one day per week. Attendance at each session is compulsory. Any missed classroom days are chargeable at a daily rate and the delegate will need to ensure that they organise a chargeable catchup session before they can sit the exam and complete their certification.

The course has been developed to increase the competency (knowledge, experience, qualifications and behaviour) to undertake a suitable and sufficient Fire Risk Assessment.

The course will build upon the knowledge and understanding of fire in construction and enhance the technical skills of the delegate, who already has a working knowledge of the industry and aims to ensure that they use all of these competencies to think as a “fire risk assessor” and review their site with respect to Life Safety.

The course has been developed with both a strong technical and practical basis, so that the delegate will be expected to be interactive with other attendees, to join in with case study work and to undertake personal study each week.

The course includes homework after each day’s session and the delegate is given the opportunity at the start of each course day to review the work covered in the previous week and to request any additional clarification resulting from this. It is important that the delegate uses the forum to engage and work through any questions or associated issues with the course.

Any examination resits or missed classroom sessions are chargeable. Please speak to a member of our team if you have any questions.
