New to Fire Cert- looking for tips

Post by Towsey »

Hi all

I am close to starting the NEBOSH fire cert.

My employers put me through a classroom based NEBOSH general cert which i have just completed, they are allowing me about a months break before starting me on the Fire one.

I have already bought the Introduction to fire safety and risk management by Andrew Furness and have started reading through this (normally read through it for a while so i can make a revision plan and timetable before the course starts).

Can anyone who has done it give me any tips or advice on the FC 1 & 2 units? This time i am doing it via distance learning so will be self taught which i don't find a problem at all.

My employers are funding me so don't want to mess it up.

Thanks

The Andrew Furness book is very good and well presented.
Can you please tell me what date the latest reprint/update is? (I use it sometimes for training)

The publication date was 2008. I could not find anything else closer to the present date.

I purchased it from Amazon- used copy (very handy as the previous owner has highlighted all the important bits)
