To manage remote training effectively, the maximum number of delegates allowed may also be reduced.

Training Assessment

This career-enhancing qualification combines activities, learning and interactive materials, creating an engaging experience. It provides knowledge you can put into action immediately, adding value to your organisation.

The updated training now consists of two assessments:

  • Unit NG1 – examined by a formal two-hour written exam.
  • Unit NG2 – a practical risk assessment, carried out at your workplace, to assess your ability to apply that knowledge. This is longer than the previous GC3 assessment.

Both assessments are marked by external examiners, appointed by NEBOSH and chosen for their experience and expertise. You will be assessed by the very best in the industry.

If you are thinking about undertaking the training we recommend that you research the qualification prior to booking and paying. The training is in-depth and requires your time, effort and willingness to successfully complete the course.

NEBOSH Certificate

If candidates are successful in passing one or more units they will be awarded a NEBOSH certificate for each unit passed. Candidates who are successful in completing all three units will be given the overall qualification parchment (NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety).

Prior Learning

It is recommended that delegates have previously attended, passed and hold a current IOSH Managing Safely qualification, however please note that it is not a pre-requisite to attend.
