ASSESSMENT & CERTIFICATION
Assessment is a two-step process:
Assessment is a two-step process:
- One question paper that assesses what you know
- A practical risk assessment that assesses what you can do
Both assessments are marked by external examiners appointed by NEBOSH.
These examiners are chosen for their experience and expertise to ensure that learners are assessed by the very best from our industry.
Those who successfully complete the course and pass the assessments are awarded the official NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health.
Certificates are forwarded to the candidate by us approximately 16 weeks after completion of the course although results are usually issued within 12 weeks.

How are Courses Run?
Our NEBOSH courses are run as full-time block courses, usually, Monday to Friday 9:00 am until approximately 5:00 pm.
Whilst other health and safety training providers may attempt to offer the NEBOSH courses in other formats, such as e-learning, distance learning, one day a week/month etc, in our experience we have consistently found that full-time block courses with exams scheduled one week afterwards make for a significantly improved likelihood of delegates passing the assessments first time around.
