8 days before your exam NEBOSH send a NEBOSH General Certificate NG1 delegate login

This is sent directly to the learner from NEBOSH, which is why it's so important that we have the correct details on your registration form, including direct delegate contact details. RISK (nor any other training provider) has any influence over the accessibility or technical connectivity between the delegate and their NEBOSH login. Which is why it is critical learners log on at the earliest opportunity and to familiarise themselves with the NEBOSH open book exam platform. We strongly recommend learners log in, change their password and familiarise themselves with the platform well before the day of the examination.

Your NEBOSH General Certificate NG1 open book exam

This exam is the same for everyone in this cohort of delegates across the World, the start time of the exam in the UK is 11.00am, for non UK delegates it's the comparable time in their country (i.e. the same 24 hours for all exam takers). All delegates have a 24 hour window to complete and submit their examination paper. Having a 24 hour window, gives you plenty of flexibility in fitting it in around other commitments i.e. work etc.

The open book examination (OBE) will be based on a realistic scenario, that will test both what you know and what you can do. You will be asked to carry out a series of tasks using evidence from the scenario and the underpinning knowledge gained through your studies and revision. You will have 24 hours to download, complete and submit your assessment.

Your assessment will be marked by an external examiner appointed by NEBOSH. These examiners are chosen for their experience and expertise to ensure that learners are assessed by the very best from our industry.

RISK & Safety Management Services get access to your submitted exam papers 3 days later

RISK access and download delegate exam submissions in preparation for closing interviews. For delegates undertaking a follow-on NG2 module with RISK their NG1 interview will be undertaken by the tutor on the NG2 module either before training starts or on completion of the training day. All other delegates will have interviews scheduled over the next 10 days.

At this point the exam hasn't been marked by NEBOSH, the purpose of this interview is to assess the work has been completed by the delegate. The aim of this interview is to ensure that the work was completed by the delegate themselves and exam scripts have not been plagiarised.

Unit NG2

NG2 course content is designed to focus your thinking into applying the knowledge gained from the NG1 course into creating a practical Risk Assessment and Written Report. Delegates complete a practical Risk Assessment and Written Report which is submitted 10 days after your NG2 Course finishes - this needs to be returned to RISK, who submit to NEBOSH.
