This qualification is suitable for managers, supervisors and staff from all types of organisations who need a broad understanding of health and safety issues. The certificate helps them manage risks effectively. 

Many people take the NEBOSH National General Certificate as a first step in a career in health and safety. It provides a valuable overview, and is a sound basis for further professional study.

The NEBOSH National General Certificate covers the main legal requirements for health and safety in the UK, identification and control of workplace hazards, and the practical application of this knowledge.  No previous health and safety knowledge is required but candidates should note the assessment includes a requirement to write a short report.

The qualification is divided into three units, each of which is assessed separately: 

  • Management of Health and Safety (NGC1)
  • Controlling workplace hazards (GC2)
  • Health and safety practical application (GC3)
Units NGC1 and GC2 are taught units each assessed by a two-hour written examination.  Each written examination consists of ten ‘short-answer’ questions and one ‘long-answer’ question. All questions are compulsory.

Unit GC3 is assessed by a practical examination carried out in the candidate's own workplace. The assessment must normally be taken within 14 days of a written examination.  The practical examination is internally assessed by the programme organiser and externally moderated by NEBOSH.

Duration: 11 days plus an examination day

Cost: £1250  (£1500 Inc VAT)
