NEBOSH International General Certificate
Internationally recognised, the NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health takes a risk management approach based on best practice and international standards, such as International Labour Organisation (ILO) codes of practice.
Over 13,000 people have achieved this qualification since it was introduced in 2004.
Who is the course for?
The NEBOSH International General Certificate is designed for managers, supervisors, safety staff, and worker representatives working in an international context 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 International General Certificate as a key part of their management or supervisors’ development programme.
Smaller organisations, operating in lower risk environments, often choose the NEBOSH International 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 International Diploma).
Holders of the International 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).
