Does The NEBOSH Diploma Expire?

Curious if the NEBOSH Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals? You can stop looking because you are in the right place.
 

November 2019

One question for many potential applicants of the NEBOSH Diploma have is whether the course expires. This blog will outline whether the NEBOSH Diploma expires and explores how learners can keep on top of how challenging the course actually is.

Like other NEBOSH courses, the NEBOSH Diploma does not expire. However, it is best practice to keep up to date with the latest legislation and health and safety news.

While you will only be marked on the units of the NEBOSH Diploma qualification at the time, it is crucial to remember the changing nature of the health and safety industry and what that means for legislation, laws, and health implementation safety in the workplace.

If you want to keep up-to date on the latest health and safety news, trends and debates keep on top of the Astutis blog page

Some health and safety courses offer refresher courses that help keep your knowledge up to date and refresh your memory on information taught in the first course. The IOSH Managing Safely Refresher and CITB SMSTS Certificates are just a couple of examples.

However, the NEBOSH Diploma is a graduate-level qualification, so there aren't any refresher courses available. That means you need to use your initiative to keep your knowledge and skills updated.

Learners of the 2015 specification can get a free upgrade to the 2020 course (available from June 2021) for five years. Don't miss out.

Check the latest syllabus

Keeping check of what NEBOSH currently include in the latest Diploma course is a great way to see what has changed at a glance. Compare this to the syllabus when you took the course and identify if anything has changed.

The latest NEBOSH Diploma Syllabus can be found here.

Keep an eye out for things like additional units, theoretical frameworks, legislation, or changes in the language used. All these things will help make sure you remain a credible source of knowledge on the subject in the eyes of NEBOSH.

Keeping tabs on health and safety

Subscribing to newsletters and blogs like NEBOSH and HSE (Health and Safety Executive) is an excellent way of keeping in touch with what is happening in the health and safety industry.

Not only is it a great source of knowledge and legislation, but you'll gain an understanding of what effect current affairs have on health and safety for your business.

Health and safety course providers also tend to have blogs and newsletters that are invaluable for keeping up to date and answering common questions.

Engage with your learning partner

Engaging with a specialist health and safety organisation can help support you and your role as a health and safety professional for your business.

They can help with training other staff members, provide consultancy as and when needed, and generally act as a conduit between your business and health and safety legislation. There are flexible consultancy options available for companies of all sizes.

Attending events such as SHExpo is a great way to keep on top of the latest health and safety knowledge while also getting exposure to health and safety products. You can also network with other professionals and learn from real-world case studies.

Events are a genuinely great way to keep on top of what is going on in the health and safety industry.

There is a lot to keep on top of as a health and safety individual. However, there is a tremendous amount of information out there, and businesses like Astutis can support you within your health and safety role.

Conclusion

So, the short answer is no; the NEBOSH Diploma does not expire. It is the perfect opportunity to improve your job prospects and drastically up your health and safety game. See your employability skyrocket and remember that nothing can hold you back.
