Keeping Delegates Interested on NEBOSH General Certificate Courses

Although some people enjoy the subject and indeed cannot get enough of it, for the vast majority of people out there health and safety is not the most exciting topic in the world, especially as they believe that much if not all of it is simply common sense. As a result, many company employees who are instructed that they have been booked on to a NEBOSH General Certificate health safety training course which lasts for two weeks may acquire a sense of dread and trepidation thinking that they will be bored on the course, having to listen about health and safety for a fortnight.

One of the key reasons for such high pass rates and for delegates to continue their health and safety training with us by taking further qualifications such as a NEBOSH Diploma for example is the fact that we recognise that to absorb and retain the information required for passing the assessments, it is imperative to keep delegates interested on the course. One of our philosophies and mantras which we introduced long ago was "no more death by PowerPoint", meaning that bombarding course attendees with endless presentation slides was a sure-fire way of having them switch off, lose attention and subsequently miss vital information which is not only important for them to later recall to pass the assessment and achieve the qualification, but also to actually put this new health and safety knowledge into practical use when back in the workplace, which essentially is what attending a health and safety training course is all about!

Our expert health and safety trainers, many of whom have been with us for many years, have carefully adapted and refined their training techniques over that time to ensure that delegates are kept fully engaged during the training and that the maximum amount of information is imparted to them. This gives them a much higher chance of passing the assessment, and is just one of the reasons why our pass rates are so high. In fact, this is why we do not offer large/lengthy health and safety courses as an online or distance learning option as it is much less likely that delegates will acquire and retain anything like as much information. Whilst some training providers will only be too happy to sign you up for a NEBOSH General Certificate and take your money for this format, we prefer to help delegates achieve the qualification rather than taking their money and hoping for the best.
