Delivery Method

Online (Instructor-led) - This course is delivered online using video conferencing software using a real live instructor.

Course Duration

9 Days - The National General Certificate involves a minimum of 68 taught hours and approximately 40 hours of private study and background reading.

Course Content

The NEBOSH National General Certificate is an occupational health and safety qualification that covers the main legal requirements for the management of health and safety in the workplace within the UK.

The course is split into two units and 11 elements:

Unit NG1: Management of health and safety

  • Element 1: Why should we manage workplace health and safety
  • Element 2: How health and safety management systems work and what they look like
  • Element 3: Managing risk – understanding people and processes
  • Element 4: Health and safety monitoring and measuring

Unit NG2: Risk assessment

  • Element 5: Physical and psychological health
  • Element 6: Musculoskeletal health
  • Element 7: Chemical and biological agents
  • Element 8: General workplace issues
  • Element 9: Work equipment
  • Element 10: Fire
  • Element 11: Electricity

This health and safety course requires further study outside of the tutor led classroom hours. NEBOSH suggests that this is typically around 40 hours of private study and background reading, though this figure will differ between individuals.

NEBOSH Assessment

This qualification is split into two separately assessed units. Assessment for unit NG1 is an open book/online examination, and assessment for unit NG2 is a work-based practical examination.


Open book assessments provide learners with the opportunity to be assessed on their knowledge and how they apply it, while still maintaining work and family commitments. The NEBOSH General Certificate NG1 unit exam provides learners with a 24-hour period to break the examination into smaller chunks. You are expected to properly plan, draft, amend and submit your online paper across this 24-hour period.

As part of the open book examination, you are able to use your notes, textbooks and the internet to research during the exam. This does not necessarily make the online exam any easier. NEBOSH suggest that the online NG1 exam should take you around 4-5+ hours to complete.


The NG2 is a risk assessment practical submitted digitally. This practical is completed based on your workplace, and involves profiling and prioritising risks, inspecting the workplace, recognising a range of common hazards, evaluating risks, recommending further control measures and planning actions.

All units must be successfully completed within 5 years to achieve the full NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety.
