If you are considering a classroom course, the cost will typically be much higher, however you could consider a virtual classroom course or an online course as a study method. As you do your research, prices will vary dramatically. Therefore, it is important that you find out from potential providers the type of learning experience they can offer you. So, when you ask for the price of the NEBOSH Diploma, the next question is what do I get for my money?
