The NEBOSH National General Certificate is held by more people in the UK than any other health and safety qualification. The certificate helps managers, supervisors and other members of staff to manage risks effectively by giving them a broad understanding of health and safety issues. In fact, many people use the qualification as a stepping stone to a career in health and safety.
This qualification is accepted by IOSH – the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health – in meeting the academic requirements for Technician membership of IOSH (Tech IOSH). It is also accepted by the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM) for Associate membership (AIIRSM). The Certificate can also be a useful step towards achieving the NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety.
There are no pre-requisites to attend this course. However, it is advantageous that candidates wishing to obtain the NEBOSH General Certificate have a general understanding of Managing Safely prior to attending the course, but it is not essential.
Length of Course: 5 days
This course is for Unit NGC1 of the NEBOSH General certificate only and focuses on the Management of Health and Safety.
Unit NGC1 is assessed by a two-hour written examination marked by external examiners appointed by NEBOSH.
