NEBOSH: National General Certificate Course

The NEBOSH National General Certificate (NGC) is the most popular and recognisable health and safety qualification within the United Kingdom, currently being held by in excess of 200,000 individuals.

Whilst this qualification underpins the knowledge of many health and safety practitioners, the vast majority of people who undertake this course do so in order to improve their knowledge in regard to their own health and safety responsibilities and those of their employers.

The NEBOSH NGC course is therefore ideal for: managers, team leaders, supervisors, safety representatives and anybody else who needs to develop a solid understanding of their health and safety responsibilities and who wishes to implement sustainable health and safety improvements in a pragmatic manner.

The qualifications are recognised as suitable for membership by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).

There are no entry requirements to study for this qualification other than having a suitable and sufficient understanding of the English language to enable course delgates to both understand and articulate the concepts being studied.

The NEBOSH National General Certificate (NGC) is UK focused and is based on UK law.  It consists of two (2) units and these must both be completed within a five year period in order to be awarded the NEBOSH National General Certificate parchment/qualification.

NEBOSH NGC delegates are assessed through written examination for NG1 and NG2 requires the undertaking of a practical assessment and completion of a formal report.  Your qualification grade is based only on the result from the question paper (Unit NG1) but you need to achieve a ‘Pass’ in both units (NG1 and NG2) before the parchment can be issued.
