NEBOSH General Certificate Pages and Articles Index
The NEBOSH General Certificate is one of the most recognised and respected health and safety qualifications, not only in the UK, but in the world. A NEBOSH qualification is so popular with people living outside of the UK that as well as the national qualifications, there are also international versions of many of the various NEBOSH Diploma and Certificate level qualifications.
As far as the NEBOSH National General Certificate is concerned, we run this course as a taught course at our training locations in some of the major cities of the United Kingdom including Manchester, Reading, and at our head office in Nottingham. It is a ten day course with the exams on the eleventh day, which means there is a lot of information to take in, particularly when it comes to workplace health and safety law and legislation. Some training providers have started offering the NEBOSH National General Certificate as a distance or e-learning provision. Whilst this style of training may work for simple short courses, it is an extremely tough way to attain the necessary information required to pass the assessment at the end, which is why we chose not to offer the qualification in this way. In fact, we have lost count of the number of people who have wasted money by going down the distance or e-learning route for the NEBOSH General Certificate (or worse still, the colossal NEBOSH Diploma!) only to realise it was too much to try and do it in this way and have to fork out more money to attend a course. The value of having a course tutor, fellow delegates with which to engage in discussions/group work, and a dedicated learning environment rather than sat at home where there is a multitude of distractions cannot be overstated.
