The NEBOSH General Certificate and Conversion Courses

Those attending NEBOSH General Certificate courses and achieving the qualification will, after the conclusion of the training, have a tremendous understanding of a multitude of health and safety topics. The NEBOSH General Certificate is such a comprehensive course in terms of the number of different hazards and issues covered that it is regarded by many as one of the best health and safety training courses available in terms of the depth of information covered by the syllabus.

Whilst the NEBOSH General Certificate course provides an introduction to the issues of fire safety and construction site safety issues, those who wish to specialise in these areas should consider the NEBOSH Fire and the NEBOSH Construction Certificates respectively. The good news for those who have already achieved the General Certificate within the last five years is that the NGC1 unit taught on the first week of the course is common to the General, Fire and Construction certificates which means that those who have already achieved the General Certificate within the last five years do not need to repeat this. They can take Conversion Courses which do not include this first week, and so are not only less expensive but also take less time to complete, and so prove an excellent option for those who have achieved the NEBOSH General Certificate qualification and now wish to obtain the Fire or Construction Certificates.

NEBOSH also have an environmental certificate qualification in the form of the NEBOSH Environmental Certificate. This is a standalone qualification, in that it does not include the NGC1 unit, and so there is no NEBOSH Environmental conversion course available as there is no NGC1 unit to teach.
