NEBOSH National General Certificate Examination:
Each delegate is required to sit two written exams, NGC1 & GC2 following the NEBOSH Certificate course and submit a hand written practical assessment (GC3).
On-site Practical Assessment (NGC3):
Attendees are required to complete an on-site workplace risk assessment assignment. This is to be completed following the exam day after the written papers have been completed. The assignment is to be completed at your own workplace and submitted to us within 2 weeks from the exam day. If a workplace is not available, a suitable space within the home for example can be used. The practical assessment is internally assessed and results uploaded to NEBOSH.
This paperwork is explained during the course by the tutor. It is the delegate’s responsibility to submit their assessment within the timescale, any assessments not returned by the deadline will result in the delegate failing this section of the course.
NEBOSH National General Certificates are awarded after successful completion of the course. NEBOSH Certificates are issued by the examining body approximately 16 weeks after the last day of the course ending including exams.
Week One: NGC1 - Management of Health & Safety
Self-Study period. This has been added due to the intense nature of the course. It allows students time to revise NGC1 before moving on to GC2, we have seen a significant increase in pass rates since this study break has been added.
