Who should attend?

The Level 1 Award in Fire Safety Awareness (RQF) is designed as an introductory qualification for people who want to increase their awareness of fire safety in the workplace.

Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). While we are often able to provide support to people who do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance. We may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.
