WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
The IQ Level 1 Award in Fire Safety Awareness (QCF) is a qualification aimed at individuals who intend to develop and gain formal recognition of their knowledge and understanding of fire safety, ranging from those who do not necessarily have any specific fire safety role to those planning to progress to further qualifications. The qualification is generic, so it is suitable for individuals working or intending to work in a variety of environments in which a basic knowledge of fire safety is necessary. It is particularly suitable for new employees or those intending to move into roles which may demand a more in-depth knowledge of fire prevention and safety.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
All learners will cover the essentials of the causes of fires, their own responsibilities and those of fire wardens, how to respond to fire emergencies, fire risk management and prevention, safely using portable fire-fighting equipment and how to check that equipment is serviceable and safe to use.
- Classroom (face-to-face) Learning
- One Day Workshop
- Assessment through Workbook evidence
Learners who achieve this qualification can progress to the Level 2 Certificate in Health and Safety in the Workplace. They can also progress to the Level 2 Award in Fire Safety Principles.
