No Environmental Conversion after a NEBOSH General Certificate Course?

For the NEBOSH Construction Certificate and the NEBOSH Fire Certificate, along with the full course there is also a Conversion Course available which is shorter in time and less expensive. This is because those who have already successfully passed and achieved a NEBOSH General Certificate within the last five years will not be required to repeat the NGC1 unit which is taught on the first week of a full NEBOSH Construction or Fire course. Those that have can just go straight to the construction or fire part of the course, saving them both time and money.

Some may wonder though why there is no NEBOSH Environmental Certificate conversion course. This is because unlike the Fire and Construction Certificates, the Environmental is a standalone qualification which does not contain this NGC1 unit. As a result there is no conversion course required as everybody will have to undergo the same training whether or not they have already acquired the NEBOSH General Certificate.
