What is the NEBOSH General Certificate Course?

The NEBOSH National General Certificate (NGC) is the most popular and recognisable health and safety qualification within the United Kingdom, currently being held by in excess of 200,000 individuals.

Whilst this qualification underpins the knowledge of many health and safety practitioners, the vast majority of people who undertake this course do so in order to improve their knowledge in regard to their own health and safety responsibilities and those of their employers.

Who is the NEBOSH General Certificate Course Suitable For?

The NEBOSH General Certificate is suitable for anyone who needs to develop a solid understanding of their health and safety responsibilities and who wishes to implement sustainable health and safety improvements in a pragmatic manner.

This qualification is designed for anyone (managers, supervisors and workers) in any type of organisation. It’s ideal for anyone who needs a broad understanding of health and safety issues to be able to manage day-to-day risks effectively. Many people take the National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety (NGC) as a first step in a career in health and safety. It gives a valuable overview and is a sound basis for further professional study.

The qualifications are recognised as suitable for membership by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).
