ASSESSMENT & CERTIFICATION
Assessment is a two-step process:
Assessment is a two-step process:
The NG1 assessment is in the new open book format that is taken at home or other suitable place, this is replaces the previous invigilated paper-based examination.
After the NG1 Open Book Exam, learners will be required to undertake a closing interview with the trainer or head of course provider, the purpose of the closing interview is to give assurance that the paperwork submitted is their own original work.
The NG2 practical risk assessment is also conducted in the workplace/home and is to be submitted within 10 days of the last date of the NG2 element.
Both assessments are marked by examiners appointed by NEBOSH.
Examiners are chosen by NEBOSH for their experience and expertise to ensure that learners are assessed by the very best from the 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 9:00am until approximately 17:00pm
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 first time around.
