Eni Ojeaga NEBOSH International General Certificate
We asked Eni Ojeaga to sit down and think back at her time studying the NEBOSH International Diploma. We ask Eni about her process of learning and how it has impacted her life since becoming an accredited health and safety professional.
Eni was given a new job as a Health and Safety Representative by her employer. She’d considered a career in health and safety for a while and was determined to make a success of her new role. So she decided to take the NEBOSH General Certificate to get a strong foundation of knowledge and kick-start her career.
Choosing the right qualification
Eni wanted to take a professional qualification in health and safety. She had a clear aim to succeed in the field of health and safety management. She knew that the safety of her co-workers was her responsibility, so she was determined to do the best she could to protect them from harm. From a personal point of view, she also wanted to build a strong career for herself.
After researching her options, Eni chose to take the NEBOSH International General Certificate (IGC). The IGC Is one of the world’s most popular health and safety qualifications. It’s designed for Managers, Supervisors and Health and Safety Representatives, like Eni. And it teaches the fundamentals of health and safety management to help people carry out their health and safety responsibilities. Eni knew it would give the perfect foundation of learning that she was looking for.
The qualification focuses on international best practice set by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and OHSAS 45001 Management System. This global approach means it helps make sure everyone is working to an approved high standard, no matter where they operate. So, it would help Eni apply her skills to job roles in her own country and internationally.
Choosing a learning provider
Eni didn’t have the time to commit to a classroom course. So, she set out to look for a learning provider that could help her achieve her qualification another way. It was important the learning provider gave her:
- A flexible study method that would fit around her busy schedule
- Lots of support from tutors and other learners so she didn’t feel on her own
- Reassurance that she’d success from excellent pass rates
“Choosing Astutis was a ‘no-brainer’ for me. The support and materials they offered was second to none. It had all the elements that were important to me in choosing who to study with.
My learning experience was one of a kind. The online course allowed me to concentrate on my day job and study at a time that was suitable and convenient to me. The online learning platform is the best I have seen. All of the elements were broken down in their simplest of form. The videos really helped me learn and the practice questions helped me prepare for the exams. And I was able to talk to other students via the forum where we exchanged ideas and questions as we progressed through the course.”
Eni successfully passed her NEBOSH International General Certificate and was able to breath new life into the Health and Safety Representative role. She used her new knowledge and skills to positively reposition the perception of Health and Safety in her workplace. It’s now functional, active and has become a topic in every management meeting.
Eni has relocated to Europe since taking her course. She is now NEBOSH Certified which she feels has put her in a better position for her career and stands her in good stead in her new local market.
“Positive changes were actively being made. I was commended several times on my role in identifying and resolving various health and safety issues.”
