The NEBOSH National General Certificate is a qualification designed to help those with health and safety responsibilities (e.g. managers, supervisors and employee representatives) to discharge more effectively their organisational duties and functions.

Who Should Attend?

This course has been specially designed for those people needing a broad base of knowledge and understanding on which a basic level of competence in occupational safety and health can be developed. Such people include managers, supervisors, employee representatives and others involved in employee safety. To date almost 74, 000 people have taken and been awarded this Certificate.

Course Objectives

Delegates will receive detailed training and will be given the opportunity to apply practical knowledge whilst gaining a clearer understanding of:

- Current safety legislation and industry best practice
- Roles and responsibilities
- Workplace hazards and controls
- Risk Management


The course consists of two blocks of five study days separated by a week. A revision day is also provided prior to the examinations. The system of assessment consists of two written examination papers, each of two hours duration (Part A1 and Part A2) and a practical assessment of two hours duration. The course delivery is based on a learner centred approach and is therefore highly participative. Delegates are required to be totally committed and will also be required to undertake private study to prepare fully for the examinations.

Distance learners will be assigned an individual tutor who will be available to offer guidance and support to delegates undertaking the course. Delegates will be provided with all course materials including study guidance and appropriate distance learning resources.
