NEBOSH General Certificate

  • Level 3 Qualification
  • ELCAS Funding Available
NEBOSH Centre Number 532

The NEBOSH General Certificate, or NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health to give it its full title, is one of the most popular and widely-held health and safety qualifications in the UK. It is intended to be taken by managers, supervisors and any other employees who require an understanding of general health and safety issues.

The NEBOSH General Certificate covers the main legal requirements for health and safety in the UK, along with the identification and control of workplace hazards, and the practical application of this knowledge.

The general content of the NEBOSH General Certificate syllabus means it is suitable and relevant for those working in virtually any industry, and is often used as a solid foundation for those going on to further study and specialising in a particular area such as construction site health and safety or fire safety.

Exams


NEBOSH Exams

NEBOSH provide standard exam sittings which are conducted every three months. Some providers enrol their candidates in these exam dates in order to keep costs to a minimum and offer low prices. Unfortunately though this can mean a wait of up to three months between the conclusion of the course and taking your exams, which is a lot of time to forgot most of what you learnt at the beginning of the course. So many lost marks will normally result in a failing of one of more unit, no qualification, and the need for a further re-sit (possibly in another three months time!), and of course even more information may have been forgotten by then. So trying to save time and money has actually ended up costing you a lot more of both!

At SPICE, we pay NEBOSH for the privilege of calling our own exams at our venues whenever we choose. This means that we are able to schedule the exams straight after the conclusion of the training (typically on the Monday following the last day of the course on the Friday before, which allows for revision over the weekend). Rather than forgetting what was taught because of a long wait, our candidates go into the exams with the knowledge fresh in their minds, which is vital for examination success.



How Are Courses Run?


NEBOSH classroom training courses for better pass rates

All of our NEBOSH General Certificate courses are run as full-time block weeks, Monday to Friday 9am until approximately 5pm. Whilst other health and safety training providers may attempt to offer the NEBOSH General Certificate in other formats such as e-learning courses, distance learning, one day a week/month etc, in our many years of experience we have consistently found that full-time block courses with exams scheduled straight after equates to a significantly improved likelihood of delegates passing all of the assessments required for actually achieving the qualification. (See Article: The Danger of Spending Money on a NEBOSH General Certificate Online Course)

Whilst some providers will be more than happy to take your money, sign you up for an online/distance learning course or one which is strung out for months and let you try and struggle your way though it, at ATC Risk management we care more about providing delegates with the best possible chance of learning the information, passing the exams and acquiring the NEBOSH General Certificate without the need for costly and time-consuming exam re-sits.

Testimonials

Both the advance organisation and the running of the courses havebeen executed to a high standard and training facilities themselves were found to be comfortable and quiet. The trainers delivered thorough and engaging material at a pace suitable for the delegates and examination success rates were high.

Feedback from the delegates has highlighted that the material was relevant for them in their place of work. Of particular benefit was the willingness of the trainers to understand, discuss and express opinion on actual examples brought into the training course from the workplace by the delegates.

I have no hesitation in recommending you as a preferred training provider, especially where there are a larger number of delegates and where coordination and flexibility are important to the client.

_ Greg Hutton, Ocado Ltd

Further to my phone call this morning re the NEBOSH course which I took with you in June. My results arrived over the weekend and I was surprised to find I had passed with a distinction. Much credit is due to Matthew for his excellent teaching, he was ably assisted by Chris and they delivered a well planned and interesting course over the two weeks. I found all the staff friendly and welcoming and really enjoyed the course.
