Have you completed the NEBOSH General Certificate?
The NEBOSH Level 6 Diploma builds upon the foundation of the General Certificate, and it is strongly recommended that you undertake this qualification first
Do you have a suitable standard of English?

It is important that learners have a suitable standard of English language in order to understand and articulate the concepts contained in the syllabus. NEBOSH recommends that learners undertaking this qualification should reach a minimum standard of English equivalent to an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score of 7.0 or higher in IELTS test.
The NEBOSH National Diploma is moving to Ofqual regulation, and as a result is now known as the NEBOSH Level 6 National Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals.

The course syllabus and learning outcomes remain the same as the previous specification.
The main driver in this change was to restore all International learners the ability to use their qualification to achieve IOSH membership.

Although there is no change in syllabus, NEBOSH have made some amendments to the assessment process, such as the length of each assessment and the number of marks available. For a full breakdown of these changes you can read our blog here:

You need to have a foundation understanding of health and safety management principals and risk and safety management skills before taking the NEBOSH Level 6 National Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals. It is strongly recommended that you take the NEBOSH General Certificate or have at least 5 years experience working in a health and safety role to increase your chance of passing.

For more information about the NEBOSH Diploma entry requirements, take a look at our blog.
As a NEBOSH Level 6 National Diploma course learner, you have access to your personal learning portal containing:
  • Unique health and safety information
  • Access to exclusive events for tailored Continuing Professional Development
  • Networking opportunities
  • Our biannual HSE journal exploring recent health and safety research.
The NEBOSH Level 6 National Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety qualification meets the academic requirements to apply for Graduate Membership (Grad IOSH) of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). It is the first step to becoming a Chartered Health and Safety Practitioner as a chartered Member of IOSH (CMIOSH).

The next step during the NEBOSH Level 6 Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety course, is completing a Skills Development Portfolio. Once the Portfolio is completed, you will be asked to attend a peer review interview. Following the successful completion of all units of your NEBOSH Level 6 Diploma, you will also need to maintain your continuing professional development (CPD).
The length of time taken to complete the NEBOSH Level 6 National Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals course varies according to mode of study. Learners have a period of 5 years from enrolment to completing their NEBOSH Level 6 National Diploma exams. 

For more information about the duration of the course and exams, please visit our Exam Hub.
Choosing a provider for the NEBOSH Level 6 Diploma can be tough. There are a lot of training providers to choose from and you want to ensure you get the most from your money. Astutis' advice is to look at online reviews and testimonials to see what past learners think and their experience.

You could also try to understand what their average pass rates are - this reflects on the quality of training and learning support. Reviewing what learning material you will have access to, for how long and on which platforms is crucial to ensure your needs are met.

Comparing the various learning methods available by learning providers and identifying the right fit for you is also really important.
For people outside of the UK we recommend the NEBOSH Level 6 International Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals.

The NEBOSH Level 6 Diploma course is available in two versions. National for UK based learners and International for learners outside the UK. Both NEBOSH courses are equal to one another however the syllabus is slightly different and is tailored to health and safety legislation in different parts of the world.

To discover the differences between the two versions of the NEBOSH Diploma, take a look at our blog.
The NEBOSH Level 6 Diploma is a Level 6 qualification which is equivalent to a UK degree with full honours. According to the National Qualifications Framework, completing the NEBOSH Level 6 Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals equates to a full bachelor's degree.
All Astutis tutors are experienced Health and Safety professionals and leaders within their field. With vast industry knowledge gained from experience, our tutors are also educationalists who hold teaching qualifications, master's degrees or doctorates.

Additionally, as NEBOSH examiners they are ideally placed to guide and coach learners to success. For those studying online in our award-winning LMS (Learning Management System), learners can further interact outside of the classroom through our exclusive tutor-led discussion forum and notice boards.

Tutors are able to raise questions and guide the conversation to further develop critical thinking around particular health and safety topics. Online learners will gain free access to revision webinars as part of their course and all Astutis learners will be assigned a tutor on enrolment who will be on hand to answer questions on a one-to-one basis via telephone or email.
Like other NEBOSH courses, the NEBOSH Level 6 Diploma does not expire. However, it is best to keep up to date with the latest Health and Safety legislation and health and safety news. You can do this by reviewing the latest syllabus, subscribing to health and safety blogs and by attending health and safety events. This will ensure that you comply with the latest and best health and safety standards of the industry.

We're always there for our customers. 98% of our learners rated their overall experience as good or outstanding.
We will always pride ourselves on our customer service. But don’t take our word for it, here is what our customers have to say.
  • "I felt a divine prompting to seek my Boss's recommendation when considering another learning partner, and she graciously suggested Astutis. Choosing Astutis turned out to be a decision without regrets. Even when I didn't pass the RA on my first attempt, the Director's response to my inquiries boosted my confidence to request a remark, which was facilitated at no extra cost thanks to the Director's advocacy. Astutis provided unwavering support throughout my journey, from inception to completion. I eagerly anticipate enrolling in additional courses and pursuing a diploma with them."

  • "Nebosh need to be consistent with the marking, I felt the marking can be somehow subjective. Different marker graded same script differently. I failed the first time because someone(marker) didn't understand the guideline and the second marker did mentioned something different. Good study material and content."
