“Knight Harwood have a long history of attending training with the CHSG. The Head of Health and Safety recommended CHSG’s Fire Diploma course.
I have now attended 4 days of the course and am really enjoying it.
The facilities at the centre are clean and tidy and everything that you might want is available.
Our tutor is engaging and knowledgeable and the content of the course is relevant to my role as a Health and Safety Manager.
If you are looking for a construction specific fire qualification then I would highly recommend the Fire Diploma and CHSG for training generally.”

On this course delegates will be involved in various teaching techniques involving presentations, case studies and group working.
Delegates will be expected to contribute to the group discussions and will already have a working awareness of health, safety, and fire legislation, ACOPs, JCOPs and other recent fire related documentation, especially related to the Construction and associated industries.
Delegates should also be aware, that there will be homework required to be undertaken in-between units.
Several of the course days also include specialist external speakers, who will provide greater in-depth knowledge and understanding in their particular fields.
Some of these also include additional CPD certificates, that delegates are able to include for their own CPD portfolio.
Each day will always start with a review from the previous day, to ensure full understanding and confidence regarding the previous units’ content (except of course Unit 1) and also a forum for all delegates to gain greater clarity and further information as and where required.
By the end of this course, delegates will have consolidated their learning on all units by having successfully completed the following:
- Attended all of the 12 units
- Written examination
- Multiple choice examination
- Practical fire risk assessment
- Examination presentation
- Dissertation minimum 8,000 words (max of 8,500 words)
On successfully completing 60% or above in each exam, the delegate will have achieved the Diploma in Construction Fire Safety and Fire Risk Management and will receive a parchment and will be authorised to use the nominals – DCFsFRM.
Note: Delegates have three years to complete the Diploma course and examinations. All retakes do carry an additional charge.
If a candidate does not choose to undertake the exams at the end of the course, they have to have completed all of the required examinations within the three-year window and again all deferred examinations carry an additional examination charge.
