The Level 1 Fire Safety Awareness Distance Learning qualification has 2 assigned guided learning hours (GLH) and 5 hours total qualification time (TQT).
GLH indicates the number of contact hours that the learner will have with the trainer/assessor. TQT includes GLH but considers unsupervised learning and is an estimate of how long the average learner will take to achieve the qualification.
Learners will be provided with learning materials and guidance to undertake independent study and research. It is beneficial for the learner to undertake additional independent learning for example by doing research on the internet.
Fire Safety Awareness Distance Learning Course Syllabus
The importance of fire safety in the workplace is underpinned by health and safety legislation that places a duty on employers to establish policies and procedures and ensure their employees receive appropriate training.
The qualification is an ideal introduction into fire safety awareness for employees and a strong basis for undertaking further fire safety training. The qualification provides learners with an understanding of the key principles of fire safety from cause to prevention and response, and is useful in the development of fire marshals.
