Description

The NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety is aimed at health and safety professionals who want to advance their career or study further as a postgraduate. It is a qualification highly sought after by employers across a number of industries.

Over seven weeks, the course covers a wide range of areas, such as risk management, occupational health, promoting a positive health and safety culture and preparing a business case for investment in health and safety.

Previous experience of health and safety is strongly advised, and those without a sufficient background in the field may be refused application. For an entry level course, please consider the NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety.

On completion, many of the diploma holders progress to become chartered members of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). They can apply for Graduate Membership (GradIOSH) too.

For those working or seeking to work as health and safety practitioners outside the UK, the diploma will also enable them to become full members of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).

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 ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
