NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health (Classroom)
The NEBOSH International General Certificate is designed for managers, supervisors, worker representatives and others who require an understanding of health and safety principles and practices. Candidates are likely to be employees of large organisations operating outside the UK, or of multinational companies already working to international standards but needing to adapt these to accord with local needs and practice.
The syllabus omits specific reference to any national legal requirements but, instead, focuses on international standards, in particular ILO codes of practice. In common with the national award, however, the syllabus is structured according to a recognized management framework.
Payments for classroom courses made within the EU (only) are subject to UK VAT at the prevailing rate.
