The NEBOSH Environmental Management Certificate is assessed in a two-step process:
EMC1: An online open book exam (OBE) and supporting closing interview
EMC2: A workplace-based practical risk assessment
You need to pass both assessments to achieve your qualification.
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 of the course.
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.
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
