NEBOSH Environmental Certificate

  • Level 3 Qualification
  • ELCAS Funding Available

The NEBOSH Environmental Certificate, or NEBOSH National Certificate in Environmental Management to give it its full title, is an environmental health and safety course which is intended to be taken by managers, supervisors and any other employees who are responsible for managing environmental issues at their workplace.

The NEBOSH Environmental Certificate qualification focuses on UK law, so is really only suitable for those who are based and operate within the UK.

You can become an Associate Member of IEMA (AIEMA) if you have completed the NEBOSH Environmental Certificate within the last 3 years. You are automatically eligible for Associate membership and are exempt from the exam.

How Are Courses Run?

NEBOSH classroom training courses for better pass rates

All of our NEBOSH Environmental Certificate courses are run as full-time block weeks, Monday to Friday 9am until approximately 5pm. Whilst other health and safety training providers may attempt to offer the NEBOSH Environmental Certificate in other formats such as e-learning courses, distance learning, one day a week/month etc, in our many years of experience we have consistently found that full-time block courses with exams scheduled straight after equates to a significantly improved likelihood of delegates passing all of the assessments required for actually achieving the qualification.

Whilst some providers will be more than happy to take your money, sign you up for an online/distance learning course or one which is strung out for months and let you try and struggle your way though it, at the BCF Group we care more about providing delegates with the best possible chance of learning the information, passing the exams and acquiring the NEBOSH Environmental Certificate without the need for costly and time-consuming exam re-sits.



NEBOSH provide standard exam sittings which are conducted every three months. Some providers enrol their candidates in these exam dates in order to keep costs to a minimum and offer low prices. Unfortunately though this can mean a wait of up to three months between the conclusion of the course and taking your exams, which is a lot of time to forgot most of what you learnt at the beginning of the course. So many lost marks will normally result in a failing of one of more unit, no qualification, and the need for a further re-sit (possibly in another three months time!), and of course even more information may have been forgotten by then. So trying to save time and money has actually ended up costing you a lot more of both!

At the BCF Group, we pay NEBOSH for the privilege of calling our own exams at our venues whenever we choose. This means that we are able to schedule the exams straight after the conclusion of the training (typically on the Monday following the last day of the course on the Friday before, which allows for revision over the weekend). Rather than forgetting what was taught because of a long wait, our candidates go into the exams with the knowledge fresh in their minds, which is vital for examination success.

Frequently Asked Questions

This accredited NEBOSH qualification is assessed by one exam lasting 2 hours, and a workplace-based practical environmental inspection project. The exam for the NEBOSH Environmental Certificate is conducted in our training centres at the end of your course, and the project is completed in your own workplace. The project should take no longer than 3 hours to complete and you will have 7 days from the end of the course to return it to us by post.

There are no pre-requisites for enrolling on the course, and no previous knowledge of environmental management is necessary. Potential candidates should be aware though of the requirement to write a short report, so a good knowledge of English is needed.

Those who successfully complete the NEBOSH Environmental Certificate course and pass the assessments are awarded the official NEBOSH National Certificate in Environmental Management. Certificates are forwarded directly to the candidate by NEBOSH approximately 16 weeks after the completion of the course although results are usually issued within 10 weeks.
