The Level 2 Distance Learning Fire Safety qualification has 3 assigned guided learning hours (GLH) and 7 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.
Leaners will be provided with learning materials and guidance to undertake independent learning and research. It is beneficial for the learner to undertake additional independent learning for example, by doing research on the internet.

The qualification is assessed by professional discussion with the trainer/assessor and evidenced by a recorded video call. The learner has a maximum of 60 minutes to complete the assessment. This recording will be kept following the FAA Data Protection Policy and will not be shared with any person except for quality assurance purposes by FAA, the FAA centre providing the training, and the regulatory bodies as required.
There is no grading of the assessment; learners pass or are referred.
Successful candidates will receive their an accredited certification shortly after attending. For further information please see the Qualification Specification.
This qualification is valid for life, however we recommend that candidates retake this course at least every 3 years. This will help to refresh their understanding & is a chance to receive the latest updates.
