NEBOSH National General Certificate

The NEBOSH National General Certificate has an updated syllabus.

The NEBOSH National General Certificate is one of the UK’s most popular health and safety qualifications. Offering a valuable overview of the core aspects of occupational health and safety, the course provides an excellent platform for individuals who are looking to build upon their knowledge and skills and take their career forward. At present 87% of UK employers request a NEBOSH qualification when recruiting for health and safety roles.

Designed for managers, supervisors and employees who have health and safety responsibilities, the certificate will equip you with all you need to know about how to manage workplace risks effectively and the new syllabus effectively represents the role of a real-life health and safety professional in 2020.

This course takes place over a 10/11 day period, including exams. Please check course content and duration carefully before booking and contact us should you have any questions.

The price of the qualification includes exam fees, course materials, lunch and refreshments.

What Has Changed?

The course is now only two units (NG1 & NG2) and the content has been restructured and updated to reflect modern Health & Safety practices in 2020. The net result is a small reduction in the overall study hours.

The major change is with the assessment where there is now only one exam and one practical assessment.

Unit NG1 is examined by a formal 2 hour written exam (replacing NGC1)

Unit NG2 is assessed by a practical assessment (this is a longer assessment than the previous GC3)
