Important Changes to the NEBOSH Diploma

So there's a new NEBOSH Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals. But why? What's so different? If you need answers, you are in the right place.
 

May 2021

The NEBOSH Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals is one of the most important qualifications in health and safety. This is because employers rely on the NEBOSH Diploma for the best health and safety training for their workforces. NEBOSH are responsible to ensure the course is always up to date. The course was revised in 2018 following extensive research and global consultation with learning partners, employers, Trade Unions and NEBOSH Alumni.

NEBOSH Diploma Teaching Time Reduced by 14%

Information overload is a real thing. It can cause the information to go in one way and come out the other. It can be a troubling obstacle for learners looking to absorb as much information as possible.

 

This time around, all possibilities of information overload occurring have been eliminated; cutting 14% of the course time out means that the course is now only 30 days, instead of 35.

 

Study the NEBOSH General Certificate Prior to the NEBOSH Diploma

Before this recent revision, the NEBOSH Diploma included A LOT of information. It still does!

 

But to improve and make the course more accessible, it has been streamlined. Some of the content removed can now ONLY be found in the NEBOSH General Certificate.

 

The NEBOSH General Certificate has always been thought of as the ideal step before studying the NEBOSH Diploma. Even more so now!

NEBOSH Diploma Assessment Process

The 2018 Diploma syllabus change means the NEBOSH Diploma qualification has also adopted new pro-active assessments designed to put the impetus in the hands of learners during this critical step in their career. 

 

Instead of four assessments, there are only three in the updated course.

 

1. UNIT ND1/ID1: 6 weeks (30 working days)

2. UNIT ND2/ID2: 4 weeks (20 working days)

3. UNIT ND3/ID3: 4 weeks (20 working days)

 

ND2/ID2 and ID3/ID3 are brand new practical workplace-based assessments. Designed to simulate leaders’ decision-making process and get the very best out of all learners.

 

The NEBOSH Diploma takes a hands-on approach to learning. Unit ND1 is assessed with a practical assignment made up of scenario-based questions, workplace activities, reflective tasks, and a short research project. Units ND2 and ND3 are assessed with a case study and scenario-based questions.

 

All assessments can be completed remotely, meaning you do not need to attend an invigilated examination venue.

Online Learning Takes the Centre Stage

One of the biggest changes is the emphasis on online learning. The online course takes accessibility and quality to a new level. The Virtual Classroom format introduces learners to brand new simulated tasks and workplace based situational activities designed to invigorate the learning process. The ease of both formats means that no exams need to be sat in person, instead learners will have access to online portals.

 

There has never been a more critical time to push your career on with the highest quality health and safety training available. Now is the best time to learn under the latest health and safety protocols. With the new NEBOSH Diploma, there are exciting new ways to study your course, your way.

 

The most popular course format is Online. In this format, you can have confidence in yourself to self-study and have complete control.

 

The Virtual Classroom allows students to have lessons in a class setting, ask questions and join a growing community of like-minded budding learners! All that from the comfort of your own home.

 

The Distance format is designed for the offline learner. You can download all materials and have control to study at your pace from a distance.

 

The Main Takeaways

So, there you have it! The new updated NEBOSH Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals has never been more essential. Don’t let anything stand in your way, have confidence in yourself and make tomorrow the best tomorrow.
