IOSH Course Entry Requirements
If you're thinking about taking an IOSH course but want to know more about the entry requirements, this post will tell you everything you need to know.
The great thing about IOSH Health and Safety Courses is that they are designed to give everybody the chance to be trained in health and safety issues regardless of their role and previous experience. We know health and safety affects everybody so we all have a responsibility to work safely.
There are no entry requirements for any of the IOSH Health and Safety Courses and they are available to anybody who wishes to take this step to equip themselves with the essential health and safety knowledge for their role.
IOSH Course and Good Working Knowledge of English
In reality, the only basic requirement for taking an IOSH Health and Safety Course is a good working level of English. You are not expected to be a proficient writer or a grammar whiz but you need to be confident to understand and write English. It is important that you or staff members are able to fully use the course materials and apply your new knowledge to your workplace.
The IOSH courses are taken by people based all over the world. The IOSH Course material is designed to offer the practical information and tools for people to develop a positive safety culture in plain English.
Best IOSH Health and Safety Course For You or Your Team
It's true that IOSH Health and Safety Courses don’t have entry requirements but some courses are aimed specifically at certain professional levels of seniority. An example is the IOSH Safety for Executives and Directors, specifically designed for CEOs and Directors and the benefits of proactively managing health and safety in the workplace.
Some IOSH courses target sectors for example IOSH Managing Safely in Aviation or IOSH SHE for Construction Site Managers. Therefore, if you or your staff do not fall into these levels or sectors those courses will not be suitable as they will be covering material that is irrelevant to specific job roles. Therefore, it is important to find the right IOSH course to fit the role.
There are IOSH courses designed for workers at every level, whether you don't have any specific health and safety responsibility, or manage a team or you are head of Health and Safety within a company. This means that careful selection of your course is necessary to be sure, that it is going to be the most suitable course for you.
Right Price for the IOSH Course
The price of the IOSH course is probably one of the key factors during the decision making process. Whether it is self-funded or the company is paying for your IOSH training, before embarking on your course you will need to decide on the best solution to meet your budget. If you are hoping to be corporately funded then you will need to approach your manager with the benefits of taking the IOSH course for the company.

Hopefully, these pointers will help you and/or your team be better placed to decide on getting started with your chosen IOSH Certificate.
