NEBOSH Courses and Qualifications
Formed in 1979, The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health, or NEBOSH for short, offers a comprehensive range of vocationally-related health and safety qualifications which are recognised throughout the world, and are designed to meet the health and safety needs - including the environmental health and safety and risk management needs - of different places of work in both the public and private sectors. NEBOSH qualifications are so well-known and respected across the globe that over 25,000 candidates a year in 65 countries undertake NEBOSH training in order to achieve a NEBOSH certificate or NEBOSH Diploma.
NEBOSH became the first health and safety awarding body to be accredited by the UK regulatory authorities in October 2000.
Only those health and safety training providers that have been accredited by NEBOSH are able to run their health and safety training courses.
NEBOSH Diploma Courses
A NEBOSH Diploma is one of the most comprehensive and well-respected health and safety qualifications available in the world. The sheer amount of work and amount of required hours means that a NEBOSH Diploma course will not be suitable for everyone.
The NEBOSH National Diploma builds upon the foundation of knowledge provided by the NEBOSH General Certificate course, and is designed to provide students with the expertise needed for a career as a health and safety practitioner. It also provides a sound basis for progression to postgraduate study, as the qualification is equivalent to Level 6 (degree level).
NEBOSH Certificate Courses
NEBOSH's Certificate-level qualifications provide an excellent foundation in health and safety for managers, supervisors and other staff and employees with health and safety responsibilities.
NEBOSH Certificate qualifications are widely taken as a first step towards a career in health and safety, and are accepted by IOSH - the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health - in meeting the academic requirements for Technician Membership of IOSH (Tech IOSH).
Our expert health and safety consultants are experienced health and safety training professionals with many years in the industry.
The NEBOSH General Certificate is intended for anyone who wishes to obtain a broad base of health and safety knowledge, upon which a basic level of competence can be developed. The syllabus covers some of the most likely dangers to health that may be encountered in most places of work. The NEBOSH General Certificate is often taken as the first step on the road to a career in health and safety, or going on to do further qualifications such as a NEBOSH National Diploma.
