- Because you want to ensure you get the best value for money
There are many ways to help you choose which provider is best for you.

The NEBOSH National General Certificate and NEBOSH International General Certificate are both versions of the NEBOSH General Certificate. The National General Certificate couse is available in the UK only and the International General Certificate is available to all countries outside of the UK.
They’re the same level, have the same units, elements and learning outcomes and they both follow the same exam structure and grading system.
The course content isn’t that much different either. They both teach you how to manage health and safety based on the “Plan-Do-Check-Act” management system. But they reference different legislation and regulation in the finer details.
