The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health is a charitable body which offers globally recognised HS&E qualifications in more than 120 different countries.
There are three basic categories of NEBOSH certification:
If you are planning a career in construction or any of a number of other vocations, a NEBOSH certification is vital to obtaining even your first supervisory or managerial positions.
NCG and Certificate-level NEBOSH qualification is also considered the equivalent of a Level 3 NQF (in England). This means that it is on par with an additional A Level.
There are several NEBOSH classes to choose from, and ultimately the right choice for you depends on your current role and what you hope to make the next step in your career.
As a certificate-level course, this is the equivalent of an A Level focusing on HS&E issues in the construction field. It involves both written and practical training.
This is a diploma level course, and looks at HS&E issues not just in the construction industry but in all kinds of workplaces. It is an excellent opportunity to broaden the scope of your training and employability.
This qualification is equal to an A Level, as it is the equivalent of a Level 3 NQF in the UK, or of a Level 6 SNQF in Scotland. This is an excellent place to start if you are just beginning your occupational health and safety career.
Any of these courses will show employers that you care about health and safety issues, and have an interest in keeping your co-workers safe.
