Additional Costs for NEBOSH Assessments

In most classroom courses, the cost of the exam is usually included in the course price but do check. For online courses with other training providers, NEBOSH Diploma assessments may be an additional cost. 

At Astutis we are always transparent about our NEBOSH Diploma course and exam prices and what's included . With other providers, you may need to factor this cost in when the time comes to register for the exam.

Ensure that you ask your course provider the cost for each NEBOSH exam, now called assessments. Ensure that you have a clear understanding for the costs of all three assessments, the DN1/DI1, the DN2/DI2, and the DN3/DI3. 

Remember to also check the cost of exam resits and course extensions. Even though these are not always needed, it's great for learners to be prepared in case extra time is required.

Virtual Tutor-Led Classroom: What is Included in the Price?

A NEBOSH Virtual Classroom course is typically more expensive. Reasons for this include the benefit of having tutor-led virtual classes, with a structured schedule across 6 weeks and ongoing live access to CMIOSH tutor support.

Choosing the Right Virtual Learning Partner For You: What Questions Should I Be Asking?

To help you decide if the Virtual course provider is worth the price, find out about:

1. Training Experience

  • What is a typical day in the Virtual class like? 
  • Filled with discussions, case studies, group exercises?
  • How many tutors will you have and what are their qualifications and experience?

You don’t want to be paying to sit through endless PowerPoint slides with no interaction!

2. Are There Additional Resources?

Do you have access to webinars,  additional course materials and supplementary study guides?

3. Course Details

  • How often is the course run? 
  • How many learners are there in the group?
  • What does the timeframe of the course/ class delivery look like?
  • What are the software platforms used?
  • What are the provider's pass rates?

For physical classroom learning, please bear in mind additional costs, which may include travel, parking and potentially accommodation if the venue is too far for you to commute to each day.
