NEBOSH Course Entry Requirements
If you are ready to take a health and safety course but you’re wondering what qualifications are required for the NEBOSH courses, this post will provide you with the entry requirements. As a note of reassurance, NEBOSH qualifications attract around 50,000 people globally, from all industry sectors, every year. Therefore NEBOSH qualifications are developed for everybody to be able to study, pass them and use the knowledge in their job to meet their health and safety responsibilities.
All NEBOSH Qualifications Entry Requirements
With the exception of the NEBOSH Diploma and the NEBOSH Technical Certificate in Oil and Gas Operational Safety (NIOG), there are no academic qualifications, skills or experience required to take the NEBOSH courses. Dependent on the NEBOSH course you choose, you will need to commit a required number of hours in class or via the online learning course materials and exams and assignment. Each course has a practical assignment, which involves report writing and/or carrying out an assessment. Learn more on each NEBOSH course assessment in our NEBOSH Exams blog. Ultimately, the course provider will advise if you meet the course entry requirements.
NEBOSH Diploma Qualification Entry Requirements
NEBOSH Diplomas are globally recognised qualifications aimed at professional health and safety advisors and environmental practitioners.To take the NEBOSH Diploma, the NEBOSH Certificate or equivalent courses and previous experience of health and safety is strongly recommended due to the high level of this qualification. It is equivalent to a degree and therefore requires a significant commitment of study time. Successfully completing the NEBOSH Certificate will provide the ideal foundation of health and safety in the workplace to make the most of studying the NEBOSH Diploma effectively.
NEBOSH Certificate in Oil and Gas Qualification Entry Requirements
The NEBOSH Technical Certificate in Oil and Gas Operational Safety is a specialist sector-specific course aimed at people working in the oil and gas industry so a foundation knowledge of health and safety is required. Completing the NEBOSH International Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety is highly recommended as the NEBOSH Oil and Gas Certificate does not replace the broad health and safety content of this qualification.
Minimum Standard of English Required
NEBOSH recommends that learners need to have a minimum standard of English for all NEBOSH courses. Learners must be able to understand and communicate the concepts in the course content and take assessments comprising exams and a short report. Dependent on the course you take, the level will vary. The level of English is based on the International English Language Testing System score in IELTS tests. Find out more on the IELTS website. The course provider will determine if your standard of English is appropriate for your chosen NEBOSH qualification.
