Have you completed the NEBOSH General Certificate?
The 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.
You need to have a foundation understanding of health and safety management principals and risk and safety management skills before taking the NEBOSH 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.
As a NEBOSH 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 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 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 Diploma, you will also need to maintain your continuing professional development (CPD).
The length of time taken to complete the NEBOSH 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 National Diploma exams. 
Choosing a provider for the NEBOSH 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 International Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals.

Like other NEBOSH courses, the NEBOSH 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.
