The NEBOSH National General Certificate covers the main legal requirements for health and safety in the UK, identification and control of workplace hazards and the practical application of this knowledge. As this is an entry level qualification, no previous health and safety knowledge is required. Candidates are required to write a short report as part of their assessment. The qualification is divided into three units, each of which is assessed separately:
- Management of Health and Safety (NGC1)
- Controlling workplace hazards (GC2)
- Health and safety practical application (GC3)
Units NGC1 and GC2 are taught units each assessed by a two-hour written examination. Our expert tuition helps ensure that candidates are well prepared for the examinations. Unit GC3 is assessed by one two-hour practical examination carried out in the candidate’s own workplace. Our expert tutor will give clear guidance on how to complete this assessment.
Candidates are awarded a certificate for each unit that they pass. When a candidate has successfully passed all three units (NGC1, GC2 and GC3), an overall qualification parchment is awarded.
