NEBOSH International General Certificate
Unlike the NEBOSH National General Certificate which focuses specifically on UK law, the NEBOSH International General Certificate is intended for those who are currently, or who may in the future, be working outside of the UK elsewhere in the world.
Health and safety laws and legislation will differ from country to country. Therefore a course which tries to cover legislation for each country will not only be impractical, but would be irrelevant for anyone attending who would not be going to that country to work! The syllabus of the NEBOSH International General Certificate instead concentrates on best practices and international conventions.
The principles taught in the NEBOSH International General Certificate syllabus are relevant to employees working in all industries. It is perfect for those with health and safety responsibilities, as well as those wishing to begin a career in health and safety.
The NEBOSH International General Certificate course syllabus is made up of the following units:
- Element 1: Why we should manage workplace health and safety
- Element 2: How health and safety management systems work and what they look like
- Element 3: Managing risk – understanding people and processes
- Element 4: Health and safety monitoring and measuring
- Element 5: Physical and psychological health
- Element 6: Musculoskeletal health
- Element 7: Chemical and biological agents
- Element 8: General workplace issues
- Element 9: Work equipment
- Element 10: Fire
- Element 11: Electricity
Online Course and Distance Learning
An online or distance learning course provides you with the flexibility to study the course in your own time when you want to, without having to travel each day to attend a training venue. For some people, taking two weeks away from the workplace will simply not be an option. This is why we offer the NEBOSH International General Certificate as both an online course and a distance learning option.
There are a whole range of additional support and study materials available to supplement your learning. These include live webinars, video tutorials, a discussion forum, interactive materials plus much more.
Study hours will vary from one individual to the next, but the recommendation from NEBOSH is approximately 133 hours.
Support is provided throughout, with expert tutors being available by phone, e-mail, Skype or secure messaging. You will have a good support system in place as you progress with your studies. There is also an invitation-only Facebook Group where students can discuss topics with each other and NEBOSH course tutors.
This course is currently assessed by two written exams and one workplace practical project. Exams can be arranged to be sat in British Council venues in many major cities across the world, however this service may be subject to additional costs.
The written practical assessment is completed in your own time, and involves a full health and safety audit/review of a company of your choosing.
Candidates have five years from the date of enrollment with NEBOSH to successfully complete all units.
