The primary goal of occupational health and safety is to create a safe work environment which in turn translates to several benefits including greater productivity, increased staff retention and even business success.
There are several strategies that can be implemented toward the achievement of these goals, including:
- Establishing safe premises;
- The use of appropriate equipment and materials;
- Establishment of safe systems of work; and
- Information, instruction and training.
This course will help you with all of the above and more. Even though this qualification won’t make you an expert, you will have a solid foundation to further your current career. Think of it as a spring board to the next phase of your working career.
Many professionals take the course to enhance their health and safety know-how. Others take the course as an investment for their professional career. Still, others complete the course because it has been set as a requirement by their employers.
The course equips students with the knowledge and skills that allow them to perform their work better and even allow them to shape health and safety policies at work and in the community. Apart from theoretical knowledge, students develop practical skills that are applicable to a diverse set of work environments.
Successfully completing this course entitles the student to become an Associate Member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health or IOSH. The National General Certificate is also recognised as an academic requirement to becoming a Technical Member of IOSH.
The NEBOSH National General Certificate is separated into the 3 Units. Unit NGC1, GC2 and a practical assessment, GC3. Once you finish the course and feel you are ready for the exams, we’ll help and support you along the way. We’ll ensure you are not alone during this process as we know it can be a bit stressful. Don’t worry! We’ll walk you through the process.
For all NEBOSH Certificate level courses, you will need to come into a NEBOSH approved exam centre such as ours.
We are holding our exams in Hull which is about one hour east of Leeds. NEBOSH Exam fees are £115 and are payable upon booking your exam. That fee covers all three parts of the exam process. If you can’t make it to Hull for your exams, don’t worry! We can help access hundreds of NEBOSH approved exam facilities here in the UK and worldwide.
If you are not in the UK for your exams, we can help there too. We have excellent relationships with the British Councils across the globe and most of them will help with the exam process. We are experts at arranging overseas exams for our students so that’s rarely an issue.
For overseas candidates, we can also help arrange for your exams to be held at a British Council or suitable University. If you wish to sit your exams at a British Council or University, we will contact them directly to ensure they are available to assist
The NGC1 and GC2 exams are both ‘written’ exams where you come into an exam centre, such as ourselves. Each of these exams are two hours long and consist of 10 short answer questions and one long answer question. Written exams are held four per year on dates set by NEBOSH. The practical (GC3) is a workplace risk assessment and management report. Don’t worry though…..we don’t come look over your shoulder nor does NEBOSH. What we will do though is give you guidance and support prior to your GC3 submission to ensure you are confident and ready. The extra guidance is part of what we do and is included in the price you pay for the course!
Our exams are hosted in our allocated exam centre in Hull. Should you prefer an alternative venue, additional sitting fees may apply but we can help you find a NEBOSH approved exam facility either here in the UK or abroad. For our overseas students, we can help arrange for your exams to be administered using the British Council network. We are the experts when it comes to arranging overseas exams!
As other NEBOSH qualifications, the National General Certificate exams are assessed and marked by NEBOSH examiners. Once you have completed your exam papers, all the exams are then sealed and sent back to NEBOSH for rigorous marking and checking to ensure maximum accuracy and consistency.
