NEBOSH Courses - Various Study Options within the UK
If you are considering taking a NEBOSH course
there are many on offer in the UK, you may be having trouble deciding whether to travel to a training venue or complete the course at home via distance learning?
There are, of course advantages to both modes of delivery and much depends on how you learn, how hectic your schedule is and what your other responsibilities are. If you choose to complete your training at a recognised centre you will have face to face support from the tutor and access to others on the same course with which to discuss your learning. This may suit those who learn well in a classroom environment and who benefit from bouncing their ideas off of others. This mode of learning often leads to completing the course in the fastest way possible as the exams are usually soon after the main body of the training, getting the whole course over and done with in one go, essential if you need to be qualified as soon as possible.
There a large range of providers in the UK who offer NEBOSH course
options and it is valuable to shop around to find the best location and price. An excellent way of doing this is to use the internet to search for the NEBOSH course
that suit your needs. By using a quick search site you can quickly find a course in the location you need, at times which suit you. It is also a simple and effective way of comparing course costs between providers, ensuring you get the best deal.
However as many of the NEBOSH courses on offer take more than a fortnight of classroom based learning to complete, your employer may not be able to spare you for this amount of time, or you may have additional responsibilities that cannot be put on hold for 2 - 3 weeks. Also, as all the NEBOSH courses include work to be completed in your own time, when combined with time spent traveling to and from the course, it can make for a very intensive training period. Add to this the rising cost of fuel and it can make the cost prohibitive to those individuals financing themselves independently. If this is the case, choosing to complete a NEBOSH course
by distance learning could be a more suitable option. In addition to the time, travel and cost advantages previously mentioned, completing a NEBOSH course
via distance learning allows candidates to dictate their own pace giving additional attention to any areas which they feel need it.
While distance learning courses do require the individual to be disciplined and motivated, support is available to them as many training providers now offer help and guidance via Facebook, email and telephone. Student forums and online materials are also available providing comprehensive support for the distance learner and increasing their confidence when studying independently from a group.
It is important to note that even on distance learning courses exams are still sat at a registered NEBOSH centre. Luckily these are accessible throughout the UK.
