NEBOSH NATIONAL GENERAL CERTIFICATE
This course is examined at our Bristol, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Norfolk, Reading, Warrington, and Wigan venues or at in-house company locations anywhere in the UK.
The NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety is the most widely held health and safety qualification of its kind in the UK with over 100,000 people having gained the qualification since it was launched in 1989.
Who is the course for?
The NEBOSH National General Certificate is designed for managers, supervisors, safety staff, and employee representatives from all types of organisation who need a broad understanding of health and safety issues to be able to manage risks and carry out their functions effectively.
Many larger organisations choose the NEBOSH National General Certificate as a key part of their management or supervisors’ development programme. Smaller organisations, operating in lower risk environments, often choose the NEBOSH National General Certificate as the appropriate qualification for the manager taking the lead on health and safety issues.
The course is also suitable for those embarking on a career in health and safety, providing a valuable foundation for further professional study (such as the NEBOSH National Diploma).
Holders of the National General Certificate are entitled to Associate Membership (AIOSH) of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). The qualification also meets the academic requirements for Technician Membership (Tech IOSH) of IOSH and Associate Membership (AIIRSM) of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).
Students will need access to the web via a broadband connection.
