Assessment is by formal examinations which can be taken after each unit at the national dates or at one sitting after completing your training. You are also required to submit an eight thousand word assignment (Unit D) and submission dates are in March and September of each year. The examinations and assignment are set and marked by NEBOSH but we will prepare you to sit the exams with confidence by setting and marking phase tests during the course and we’ll be here to support you during the assignment phase.
Directed private study
Private study is the key to success.
