Find your qualification below:

  • Please note that this database of qualifications is not exhaustive and only contains qualifications which have previously been scrutinised by the Membership Applications Assessment Panel. 
  • The Membership Applications Assessment Panel assess qualifications in conjunction with other elements of an application; please note that qualifications alone will not result in IFE membership. 
  • In order to be acceptable for membership purposes, qualifications must meet the minimum requirements specified for the grade that is being applied for.  This means that they must be at, or above, the specified level and of a minimum size in terms of the number of hours of study required to achieve the qualification. Please see the matrix above. 
  • Qualifications can be used either on their own (where one qualification meets both the level and size requirement for membership at the grade being applied for) or in combination with one or more other qualifications. Where qualifications are combined, both/all qualifications must be at, or above, the minimum level for the grade of membership required and the combined learning hours as specified by the body/bodies certificating the qualifications must meet the minimum hour requirement. Where credits are being used, 1 credit will be treated as equivalent to 10 hours of study.    
  • Qualifications are listed by the country where the awarding organisation/body is based. Qualifications awarded by the IFE are shown under the UK listing. 

If your country and/or fire engineering related qualification are not listed here, please send full details (including course module breakdown/syllabus and credit equivalency/number of hours study) and your certificate to membership@ife.org.uk for consideration. 

If you are a representative from an awarding body and feel that your qualification has been listed below incorrectly, please contact membership@ife.org.uk with full details.
