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?

  • Develop career opportunities – over 90% of HSE job advertisements ask for the NEBOSH General Certificate as a minimum.
  • Increase your health and safety knowledge – the NEBOSH General Certificate will give you an understanding of key issues so you’re able to manage health and safety within your role.
  • 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.

Additional support

Check how much this is before you book so that you don’t get any costly surprises.
