How Are Classroom Courses Run?

NEBOSH classroom training courses for better pass rates

All of the NEBOSH Environmental Certificate classroom courses are run as full-time block weeks, Monday to Friday 9am until approximately 5pm.

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.

The presence of a course tutor in the room, always on hand to instantly answer any questions or provide further clarification of a particular point, is a key reason as to why classroom courses typically provide the best pass rates.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the Classroom Course Assessed?

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.

When Will I Receive my Results and Certificate?

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.

NEBOSH Environmental Certificate Distance Learning

Studying the NEBOSH Diploma by distance learning

Whilst we would always recommend a classroom course as the best option for learning the information, passing the assessments and achieving the qualification, we realise that for some people, taking five days out of the workplace will simply not be an option. Therefore, we also offer an the NEBOSH Environmental Certificate course by distance learning.


Support is provided throughout, with expert tutors being available by phone, e-mail, Skype or secure messaging. Although it might not be as good as having a tutor right there with you in the room, you will still have a good support system in place as you progress with your distance learning studies. There is also an invitation-only Facebook Group where students can discuss topics with each other and NEBOSH course tutors.


To achieve the qualification, candidates must pass a 2 hour written exam (which can currently be sat in London, Birmingham or Manchester), and a practical assessment carried out in the candidate's own workplace. This practical assessment needs to be completed within 14 days of sitting the written examination.

Candidates also need to have completed both parts within two years of registration.

The distance learning NEBOSH Environmental Certificate course costs £395.00 + VAT. This price does not include the NEC1 and NEC2 exams/assessments.
