NEBOSH Training - Courses are Targeted at a Comprehensive Range of Professional Qualifications.
NEBOSH is the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health and has been an independent examining board and awarding body for over 40 years. NEBOSH qualifications are highly regarded in both the health and safety and environmental professions. They are recognised both within the UK and throughout the World and look great on your curriculum should you wish to apply for a job related to either of these disciplines.
The Award qualifications are perfect introductory courses for those who are new to an area. NEBOSH training
courses geared towards awards are also perfect for an organisation workforce to increase awareness in either health and safety or environmental disciplines. The relevant awards are the NEBOSH Health and Safety at Work Qualification and the NEBOSH Safety, Health and Environment for the Process Industries qualification.
Leading on from the Award Qualifications there are the the Certificate Level Qualifications and those with existing experience will typically go straight to a Certificate Level Course. A Certificate Level course is often seen as a first step to a career in either health and safety management or environmental management. There are a many NEBOSH training
courses aimed at those wishing to achieve certificate level qualifications. Certificate level qualifications include:
- NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health
- NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Health and Safety
- NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate
- NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety
- NEBOSH National Certificate in Environmental Management
- NEBOSH National Certificate in the Management of Health and Well-being at Work
- NEBOSH International Certificate in Construction Health and Safety
- NEBOSH International Technical Certificate in Oil and Gas Operational Safety
Classroom based NEBOSH training
courses for certificate level qualifications will vary in duration and are typically run over a couple of weeks. As well as classroom based courses many of the NEBOSH Certificate level courses are also available as Distance Learning Options. The Distance learning options are typically much cheaper than the classroom based options, but will not suit everyone.
As well as the full certificate training courses there are conversion course options that will meet the needs for some candidates. The common conversion courses are those for the NEBOSH Construction Certificate and the NEBOSH Fire Certificate. The conversion options exist for candidates who already hold the NEBOSH General Certificate and the first unit NGC1 is common all three qualifications. To qualify for a NEBOSH Conversion Course a candidate must demonstrate a pass on NGC1 within the last 5 years.
The next level of NEBOSH qualifications are the Diploma level qualifications. There are three NEBOSH Diploma qualifications, these are:
- NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety
- NEBOSH International Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety
- NEBOSH Diploma in Environmental Management
Diploma level NEBOSH training
classroom based courses will vary in duration, dependent on the number and depth of the units relating to the specific qualification, but will typically last between forty to fifty days in total time, although longer in elapsed time. Again there are Distance Learning options for the NEBOSH Diploma qualifications, and for many delegates this option might be a viable alternative to the classroom based NEBOSH training
