Do NEBOSH Courses Expire?

Before sitting a NEBOSH exam and answering its numerous questions, candidates tend to have some of their own.

January 2019

The answer to that is, in short, no.

Once an applicant has successfully completed all units of a NEBOSH qualification, they are safe in the knowledge that their qualification will last forever. The only point of note is that learners need to complete those same units of a NEBOSH qualification within a five-year period there is no requirement to revisit them at any point in the future. This not only means they remain qualified but also that there is no need to retake the course.

Keeping Up To Date

However that is not the end of the story and there is good reason for this in that health and safety – and approaches to it – are constantly evolving.

The reality is, new legislation is introduced every few years which either re-writes or replaces previous regulations. What this means of course, is that material learned during previous studies should be continually updated by keeping on top of new legislation and changes to existing legislation.

When signing-up for a NEBOSH qualification an individual makes a commitment to taking the health and safety for themselves and those around them seriously. Achieving a pass mark not only reflects well on their company but can lead to career progression and increased responsibility and part of that responsibility is keeping up to date with legislation, no matter how long one has held a NEBOSH course for.

  • "Good level of detail on all areas covered"

  • "Good course. Some cheeky questions in the exam which have no real connection to environment and were more like HR questions around ethics and diversity"

  • "Good communication with info sent in a timely manner"

  • "An interesting course with good and relevant content"
