The NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety is designed to equip supervisors, managers and employee representatives with a thorough knowledge of the essentials of health and safety.

During the two-week course, delegates will gain a thorough knowledge of health and safety legislation and its practical applications. They will learn how to spot workplace hazards and how to prevent them, as well as to assist in your company's safety management programme.

All this will be taught in clear, jargon-free language with a focus on real-world applications, allowing delegates to take their new skills into the workplace from the very start.

On successful completion of two exams, delegates will be awarded a certificate from the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) – a nationally recognised and respected independent industry body.

The practical assessment must be submitted 5 working days after the date of the written examination. This does not include weekends or bank holidays.

Learning with the British Safety Council will enable delegates to benefit from our extensive experience in health, safety and environmental management, acquired over the last 60 years. During this time, we’ve educated people from all over the world and have developed expert tuition methods, using the most modern teaching techniques.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, 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 Courses, 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.
