About the qualification

The purpose of this qualification is to confirm occupational competence. Delegates must demonstrate that they are capable of carrying out fire risk assessments and have the under-pinning knowledge needed, at the required depth.

Vulcan Fire Training now offer a CIFRA incorporating our 5-day Fire Risk Assessor course or Fire Manager course.

THE ONLY VFT COURSE DATES ASSOCIATED WITH THIS QUALIFICATION ARE THE 5-DAY FIRE RISK ASSESSOR OR 9-DAY FIRE MANAGER COURSE. 

The Level 3 Certificate consists of 4 Units and a final closed-book examination:

  • Unit 1: Work in a safe and professional manner
    Delegates provide a portfolio of evidence to justify a specified number of guided learning hours.
  • Unit 2: Fundamental principles and concepts for fire risk assessment
    Delegates provide a portfolio of evidence to justify a specified number of guided learning hours.
  • Unit 3: Prepare to undertake fire risk assessments
    Delegates provide a portfolio of evidence to justify a specified number of guided learning hours.
  • Unit 4: Undertake and report on fire risk assessments
    Delegates submit 3 recent fire risk assessment reports (not theoretical) as a portfolio of evidence.
  • Final examination – The final examination is a closed-book 30-question multiple choice paper which delegates sit AFTER successfully passing Units 1 to 4.

Note: Units 3 and 4 can only be submitted after Units 1 and 2 have been completed and the final exam can only be arranged after all 4 Units have been passed.
Vulcan Fire Training has developed guidance to give clarity on what is required for each of the 4 Units and the documentation is supplied to delegates as part of the course materials.
