Overview

The NGC online course is based on the new syllabus and includes the preperation needed to sit the new Open Book Exams (OBE). The online course allows you to study at your own pace and in your own time without the need to take time off work or stay away from home. The interactive course includes tutorial videos, interactive exercises, student forums, tutor support, and practice questions to make sure you are fully prepared for the exam and risk assessment.

Taking the NEBOSH General Certificate will provide you with the key knowledge to provide a safe working environment for you and your colleagues, which in turn promotes efficiency and productivity within the workplace. This can make you incredibly attractive to employers, particularly as 90% of health and safety roles specify one or more NEBOSH qualifications are required.

Description

The NEBOSH Certificate is divided into two units NG1 and NG2 which are assessed separately:

NG1 is broken down into four elements made up of:

  • 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

The NG1 Exam is an online Open Book Exam (OBE)

NG2 is a practical risk assessment exercise demonstrating an understanding of elements 5 - 11 including:

  • 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

Who is this course for?

The NEBOSH General Certificate is a great starting point when it comes to health and safety and doesn't necessarily need to be taken by those already in health and safety roles. In fact, 70% of people who take the course are in roles outside of health and safety!

Requirements

The NEBOSH General Certificate is a level-3 qualification, equivalent to a UK A-level. Those who pass the course are qualified to manage health and safety and protect people from illness and serious injuries – that’s a serious job, they don’t just hand it out to anyone!

That said, over 175,000 people have gained the NEBOSH General Certificate qualification since it was launched. So, providing you put in plenty of study time and prepare well in advance for your exams, there is no reason why you would not be able to pass.

Career path

Once you have successfully passed both units of the qualification it’s yours forever. However if you’re hoping to progress onto other NEBOSH qualifications, you’ll need to do so within 5 years.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
