NEBOSH NGC National General Certificate Course

NEBOSH's National General Certificate qualification gives a good foundation in health and safety for managers, supervisors and staff with health and safety among their day to day responsibilities.

This qualification is widely taken as a first step towards a career in health and safety and is accepted by IOSH – the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health – in meeting the academic requirements for Technical Membership of IOSH (Tech IOSH).


NGC1: 1st to the 5th April

NGC1 Exam: 12th April

GC2: 15th to the 19th April

GC2 Exam: 26th April

What Does the Qualification Cover?

The NEBOSH National General Certificate covers the main legal requirements for health and safety in the UK, identification and control of workplace hazards and the practical application of this knowledge. The syllabus is mapped to the National Occupational Standards for Health and Safety owned by Proskills. No previous health and safety knowledge is required but candidates should note the assessment includes a requirement to write a short report.

The qualification is divided into three units, each of which is assessed separately:

Management of Health and Safety (NGC1)

Controlling Workplace Hazards (GC2)

Health and Safety Practical Application (GC3)

Synopsis of Course Syllabus

The NEBOSH General Certificate course syllabus is made up of the following units:

Unit NGC1: Management of Health and Safety

  • Element 1: Foundations in health and safety

  • Element 2: Health and safety management systems – Plan

  • Element 3: Health and safety management systems – Do

  • Element 4: Health and safety management systems – Check

Unit GC3: Health and Safety Practical Application


This accredited NEBOSH qualification is assessed by two exams of 2 hours each, and a workplace-based practical inspection project. The exams are conducted in the centre where you studied NGC1 and NGC2. The practical assignment is completed in the workplace; the practical assignment should take no longer than a day to complete and you will have 10 days from the exam date to return it to us by email.


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 afterwards make for a significantly improved likelihood of delegates passing all of the assessments first time around.

What's Included?

There are NO hidden extras to pay on top of our health and safety training course prices, unlike other providers who charge extra for things like study books and exam fees.

All of our NEBOSH General Certificate courses have the following included in the course cost:
