1. Take it Seriously
Firstly you need to get your head in the right place to train. You need to take any further training for your career very seriously. There is no use starting a training course if you are not that bothered or interested in it. You will quickly lose focus and this will make it very hard for you to devote the time and effort to succeed. Before you start your NEBOSH course make sure you have thought carefully about why you want to do it and what you hope to achieve. Keep your eye focused on the prize, which is a nationally recognised qualification that can improve your skills and career prospects.
2. Plan Your Time
Many people training for a NEBOSH National General Certificate are already in a career. This means they will have to fit training in around their day job and family commitments. This can be tricky but is not impossible. You just have to be very organised and dedicated. Try and do a little bit of studying every day. This will spread the workload out and prevent any need for ‘cramming’.
3. Look Out for NEBOSH Revision Sessions
NEBOSH accredited centres offer various revision classes around the country. These can be highly beneficial as you will have a chance to interact with expert tutors and also other students. Immersing yourself in this kind of learning environment can boost the effectiveness of your studying and provide you with a chance to practice exam questions, get feedback on your progress so far and iron out any little problems you may have experienced.
