Who should attend and key benefits

The course is designed for individuals wishing to further develop their auditing skills and knowledge to cover complex premises and environments.  

The key benefits are delivery flexibility and a reduced assessment burden. Our delivery model combines all knowledge elements and consists of pre-course learning followed by a 10-day input period (does not have to be concurrent). There will then be a period back in service/employment where you will continue with your ‘on-the job’ training and mentoring. Finally, candidates will complete a simulated practical assessment using 3D virtual gameplay scenarios designed to test practical audit skills.

Course entry criteria

Delegates should be in a fire safety role and should have a sound knowledge of auditing within low/medium risk premises.
