How to pick a NEBOSH Training Course?
No, it's ok, this isn’t Master Mind! It’s just that there are a number of different subjects that a NEBOSH course
can cover. The content of each NEBOSH course
differs according to whether it is one of the general or more specific ones on offer. The general courses include the International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety, the National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety and the NEBOSH Health and Safety at Work Qualification award. The specialist courses include award, certificate and diploma level courses on the environment, as well as certificate level on construction, fire safety and oil and gas. With such a wide range of subjects on offer, it is easy to pick the NEBOSH course
that applies most closely to your career goals.
Most NEBOSH courses including the certificate and diploma options are delivered in a modular format. This means that the learning is split into themed sections, making it easier to engage with the information and when it comes to revision. Additional benefits that the modular structure of the NEBOSH course offer, are that many providers offer the opportunity to study one module at a time, meaning that you can easily fit your study around home, work and financial commitments. In addition, the modular format means that if retakes do become necessary, you can save time, money and effort only retaking the necessary, individual modules and not the entire course.
Levels of Learning
One of the key reasons for the popularity of the NEBOSH course, both in the UK and abroad is that the levels of learning on offer progress as your career does. You can start with a basic award course, progress onto a number of certificate level courses and finally achieve a diploma level course. However, it is worth bearing in mind that although each level is comparable to the NQF framework, enrolment on the diploma level course does usually require completion of a certificate level course or equivalent beforehand.
Modes of Learning
One of the best things about picking a NEBOSH course
is that there is now a choice of how to complete it. You can either pick the more traditional route and attend a face to face course or take advantage of the new option and complete it by distance learning. The face to face course means you will attend a training provider’s venue, along with other delegates, where the NEBOSH trainer will guide you through the material. A distance learning course is where the materials are sent out to you and you study, at your own pace, at home. The exam date for distance learning courses is often negotiable, so you can select when you feel confident. This can really help to maximise your chances of success. Practical Application
Another key advantage of the NEBOSH course
is that many include a module concerned with the practical application of knowledge. This is invaluable not only for your own peace of mind, but also helps to demonstrate your competence in a real world situation. As health and safety must always be applied to the real world, this experience can give you a significant head start in you role.
With such a wide range of courses on offer, in modes to suit you, there has never been a better time to book your NEBOSH course
