Training Staff Effectively
NEBOSH qualifications are mainly targeted at managers and those working in a professional capacity within the health and safety sector. A NEBOSH Course is a great option for those working both in the private and public sector. Training courses leading to NEBOSH qualifications are taken by about 30,000 candidates each year.
Taking a NEBOSH course is relatively simple once the relevant course has been chosen, and there are centres that stage training and examinations nationwide, so it should be easy to find a NEBOSH course near you.
There are a wide range of courses available that have been specifically designed to meet health and safety needs of different disciplines within the work place. The style of training that staff may need will, of course, depend on their business and their daily practices.
Choosing a NEBOSH course for either an individual member of staff or a group can be tricky, and it is a good idea to start any search online. There are many providers available that can offer a variety of courses for any business, and it should be relatively easy to find the right course for any business needs. NEBOSH offer a number of certificate level and diploma level qualifications. Some providers may be able to offer discounts for those who book a larger number of courses at once, which may be particularly useful for newer companies who need to train a large amount of staff quickly.
When deciding to send staff on a NEBOSH course, it is important to consider how their training will fit into their working timetable. Missing a large amount of time from work to train is something that no manager will want their staff to have to do, so it is a good idea to check the timings and dates that are available for training days. Many providers should be able to offer a range of dates to suit any company, and it may be a good idea to book training days quite far in advance. This is a particularly good idea for training which will occur during the summer, as holidays can often get in the way of training schedules, and missed days can be inconvenient and costly. The length of time that a course will take will vary depending on the course subject and delivery style.
How the course time is structured should be relatively flexible, and most providers will offer different options to suit their customers. For example, some companies may prefer to send their staff for a number of consecutive days or weeks, dependent on the course type, to achieve an intense training schedule that will be finished quickly. However, some may prefer to send their staff just one day a week over a period of time, so that work duties are not affected by time off. Finding the perfect style and delivery should be easy with any good provider. There is a range of options including day release options and block courses or blocks for individual units of courses.
