Can you guess what the most common question about the NEBOSH General Certificate is?

Yep, that's right. How much does it cost?

The answer is – it depends.

Obviously, the price of the course will be different for each course provider. And it'll vary depending on your chosen learning method and location. There's also other costs you'll need to consider like travel, extra support, exams and VAT.

Is the NEBOSH General Certificate worth the cost?

  • Gain practical skills to use in your job – the practical elements of the course will help you develop the skills such as planning, assessing situations and management report writing.
  • Achieve and maintain compliance in your company – a key element of the NEBOSH General Certificate is looking at UK or international regulations. So you’ll be able to make sure your company is meeting recognised standards and complying to the right legislation and codes of practice.

NEBOSH General Certificate costAstutis offers the NEBOSH General Certificate online course at £450. 

The price of the online course with other providers will differ based on the amount of support on offer and the amount of time you have access for. Some course providers may have sneaky additional fees so make sure you check some of the following before you book:

Additional support

Every online course will give you access to course materials, but additional support features such as webinars, assignment feedback, tutor support or revision sessions may come at an additional cost. It’s worth asking for a trial or demo of the course so you can get to grips with it, and then ask your provider about any additional features you think you may need. 

Exam fees

The NEBOSH General Certificate has online open-book exam and 1 assignment. Exams are run throughout the year, so as an online learner, you have the flexibility to sit your exams at any point, when you feel ready. 

Astutis offers the NEBOSH General Certificate exams for £250 + VAT which includes registration fees.

Extension fees

You’ll want to check how long you have access to your course for. If you’re getting towards the end of your course and you feel you aren’t ready to sit your exams yet and want to extend your access, you’ll usually be charged an extension fee. Check how much this is before you book so that you don’t get any costly surprises.

Classroom courses are usually the more expensive learning option. The price of your course will always include tuition for the duration of the course (this can vary between providers but is usually 2 weeks) and course materials, but there are additional costs that you’ll need to consider too, such as:

  • Lunch and refreshments throughout your course
  • Parking costs
