The NEBOSH Environmental Course, enables the professional taking the course, to learn in more detail about environmental management systems, including the relevant legislation and standards for the control of environmental hazards.

So, with that in mind combining the NEBOSH Environmental Training Course with some form of NEBOSH health and safety course can be a useful stepping stone towards achieving full NEBOSH Environmental Diploma accreditation.
The NEBOSH National Certificate in Environmental Management has two units, these being NEC1 and NEC2.
