HOW ARE COURSES RUN?
Full-time Block Courses
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 afterwards make for a significantly improved likelihood of delegates passing the assessments first time around.
Accessibility and Special Requirements
Unfortunately, as the classroom is located on the first floor and with no lift facility, delegates with certain physical impairments may find it access challenging.
Please inform us if you have any physical or learning impairments at least 6 weeks prior to the start of the course.
