Course description

NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety

The mostly widely held health and safety qualification in the UK, the NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety is an excellent first step for those assuming H&S responsibilities.

The course comprises three modules – or “Units” :

  • NGC1 – Management of Health & Safety
  • GC2 – Controlling Workplace Hazards
  • GC3 – Health & Safety Practical Application

The course is ideal for people who need a comprehensive knowledge of health and safety and is suitable for managers, supervisors and staff with some level of responsibility.

Those who pass gain a qualification which is comparable with an NQF Level 3 or SCQF Level 6.

This qualification meets the academic requirements for Technician membership (Tech IOSH) of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and Associate membership (AIIRSM) of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).

Suitability - Who should attend?

No previous health and safety knowledge is required but candidates should note the assessment includes a requirement to write a workplace related short report.
