Your NEBOSH Environmental Certificate Exams With Astutis

The NEBOSH Environmental Certificate has two assessments: 

  • EMC1: Open book exam and supporting closing interview.
  • EMC2: Practical risk assessment. 

You must pass both to achieve your full qualification.

Unit EMC1: Open Book Exam

Unit EMC1 is assessed with an open book exam which is submitted online. The exam should take around 3 hours, but you'll have 24 hours to download your exam paper, complete your answers, and submit them to the NEBOSH portal for marking.

The exam paper will include a case study and set of task-based questions which relate to the content covered in elements 1-9. 

The aim of the exam is to test your ability to apply your learning to a real workplace scenario. Your answers should be relevant to the given situation and, when appropriate, reference evidence from it directly.

Closing interviews

Closing interviews are held within the weeks following your Open Book Exam. The interview should last around 10 minutes and will be completed online. 

Don't worry, the interview doesn't impact your marks for your paper. It's simply there to confirm your identity and make sure it was you who completed the exam.

Unit EMC2: Practical Risk Assessment

Unit EMC2 is a marked risk assessment. You need to apply your understanding of elements 3-9 by reviewing the environmental aspects and impact of your own workplace. 

The risk assessment is split into 4 stages, based on the requirements of ISO 14001:2015:

  • Introduction to the organisation and methodology used
  • Identification of environmental aspects, associated impacts, an existing controls
  • Significant aspects, key issues, and recommended additional measures
  • Communication and review
