The NEBOSH International General Certificate (also referred to as the NEBOSH IGC) is suitable for those embarking on a career in health and safety at an international level. It provides a sound basis for progression on to the NEBOSH International Diploma and is often seen as an initial step to a career within health and safety management. It is aimed at managers, supervisors and employees who are typically based outside of the UK and need a broad knowledge and understanding of health and safety principles and practices.
Successful candidates who pass the NEBOSH International General Certificate course will be eligible to become Technical Members of IOSH (TechIOSH) and can use these designated letters after their name. Members at this level must maintain their level of knowledge through the IOSH Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme. This qualification also opens the door to become an Associate Member of IIRSM (International Institute of Risk and Safety Management).
It is also possible to sit a Conversion Course, which will allow those who currently hold a NEBOSH General Certificate to add the NEBOSH International General Certificate as a bolt on to maximise their career opportunities outside the UK.
The International NEBOSH General Certificate is divided into three units; NEBOSH IGC1, IGC2 & IGC3. These are typically taken as individual General Certificate courses. Units IGC1 and IGC2 are generally taught units and are both assessed by written examination. The third unit, IGC3 is assessed by a practical examination.
Each candidate is required to carry out and complete:
Students will normally be required to complete the IGC3 assessment within 14 days (before or after) of sitting the examination for Units IGC1 and/or IGC2.
