IFE vocational qualifications are recognised by employers throughout the UK and internationally. They are recognised and regulated by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) and the Welsh Government.
The IFE is the only regulated Awarding Organisation in the UK that specialises entirely in the fire sector. Our assessment materials are developed and quality assured by sector experts who bring extensive experience and up-to-date knowledge to the assessment process.
Each year the IFE receives over 7,000 exam entries from candidates in more than 35 different countries and interest in IFE qualifications continues to grow significantly each year.
The IFEs delivery processes comply with best practice and meet national regulatory standards. Candidates entering for IFE qualifications can be confident that:
- They are accessing a valued qualification recognised nationally and internationally
- They will receive a professional and robust assessment by industry experts
- Achievement will provide them with a platform for further study and professional development
The IFE offers examinations at all Branches annually in March, and more recently has introduced a limited timetable for examinations October in the UK and some international Branches (including South Africa).
