Many people take the NEBOSH National General Certificate as a first step in a career in health and safety. It provides a valuable overview, and is a sound basis for further professional study, such as the NEBOSH National Diploma.

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. This is reflected in the three units that comprise the qualification.

Unit NGC1
Management of Health & Safety
Unit GC2
Controlling Workplace Hazards
Unit GC3
Health & Safety Practical Application

The qualification is divided into three assessed units, each of which is assessed separately. Assessment is by two written examinations (one for each of the Units NGC1 and GC2) and a work-based practical examination (Unit GC3). All units must be completed within 5 years in order to achieve the full qualification.

The subject matter knowledge is excellent and examples are relevant to the course. The approach is relaxed and very grown up and encourages all to interject and add additional depth to the subject.
