NEBOSH Qualifications - A Comprehensive Range of Courses
NEBOSH qualifications are very well respected both within the UK and globally.
Broadly speaking the different types of NEBOSH course address the varying requirements of NEBOSH certificate courses and NEBOSH diploma courses. A NEBOSH course is typically divided into units, so it is often possible for students to study for individual units, rather than taking the whole course at once. The certificate courses include; the National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health, the National Certificate in Construction Health and Safety, which is specific to the construction industry, the International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety, the National Certificate in Environmental Management and the Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate
The NEBOSH Diploma level courses are targeted at professional qualifications for health and safety or environmental practitioners. NEBOSH courses for Diplomas include the National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety, the International Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety and the NEBOSH Diploma in Environmental Management. Again the diploma level courses are divided up into units and are frequently studied for on a unit by unit basis.
Many supervisors and managers may be reluctant to commit to a NEBOSH course or any other training which will take them away from their site. The best way to avoid taking too much time away is to find a NEBOSH course as close as possible to the site. There are many course providers who can offer courses all over the country, and who have regular training sessions to allow you to find one which is convenient and local. There are also many different course structures which can help to keep managers on site for the majority of the working week. Whilst some courses are completed in one of more blocks, typically each of 5 or 10 days dependent on the course, it may be possible to find a good provider who can offer course training on just one day a week, over a course of weeks. This is a great way to avoid having to be absent from work for a long period of time, and can offer managers the option to fit training into their working week easily without too much inconvenience.
Some providers may even be flexible in the dates and times which they can offer for a NEBOSH course, so it is always worth finding a provider with a few different options available, and then phoning or emailing them to enquire about courses in your area. Many online providers can also offer very good prices on their courses, and it should be easy to find the right course to suit any staff and company. Pass rates may vary from course to course, so it is always a good idea to enquire about pass rates before booking a course. Having well trained employees is essential to create an efficient working environment, and a safe working environment will allow all staff to work to the best of their abilities.
