Am I better off going for an Online or Classroom-based NEBOSH National Diploma course?

It is important to recognise when choosing a distance or online learning course, that a great deal of dedication is needed for self-study. You will need to set aside personal time for learning and may need to honestly evaluate whether this method of learning suits you. Our online course is more flexible and interactive whereas our classroom courses are taught in intensive 6 weeks split over 12 months. We will be happy to advise you further, just fill out this short form to get in touch.
