New and improved, the recently released 2021 publication of the NEBOSH National Diploma for Occupational Health & Safety Management Professionals online course, is for those working within the UK with a high level of health and safety responsibility within their organisation.
Designed as a direct replacement for the older “NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health & Safety (2014 specification)”, this new NEBOSH Diploma is easier to digest and more accessible to learners – as course assessment can now be completed remotely via Internet, unlike the older version.

This online NEBOSH National Diploma course provides the knowledge and understanding that underpins competent performance as an Occupational Health and Safety Practitioner (OHASP).
Upon successful completion, Diploma holders will have the necessary skills to perform and excel within any safety focussed job role.
There are three units to study in the NEBOSH National Diploma:
Students should be mindful this is a Degree level qualification and as such SHEilds classify the NEBOSH National Diploma course as a demanding qualification.
Students may find it very difficult to gain a pass mark if they do not have existing background knowledge as a health & safety practitioner or the ability to study at Degree level.
The NEBOSH National Diploma in Health & Safety is designed for individuals with a desire to progress their career in Occupational Health & Safety and work within the United Kingdom only.
100% aligned with UK standards, our NEBOSH National Diploma course will help you to develop the knowledge and skills in order to become a fully qualified health & safety practitioner or safety officer to the very highest level.
If you intend on working outside of the United Kingdom, you must study the NEBOSH International Diploma as this covers international best practices. The International Diplomas omits the requirements of UK Law and Legislation.
A NEBOSH National Diploma is a Level 6 qualification on the NQF, a Level 10 on the SCQF and equivalent to a University Bachelors Degree. To progress further, we suggest moving on to a Level 6 NVQ or NEBOSH Environmental Diploma course.

Major update: The new 2021 publication of the NEBOSH National Diploma no longer includes information covered within the level 3 – National General Certificate course. This means, as of July 2021 NEBOSH now strongly recommend learners should complete the General Certificate (or similar qualification) before undertaking this level 6 Diploma.
Therefore, it will be extremely beneficial for students to have already achieved certification in the National General Certificate before attempting this nebosh Diploma level course, as this greatly improves a students’ potential end-result.
Students may find it difficult to gain a pass mark, if they do not have prior background knowledge as a health & safety practitioner or the ability to study at Degree level.
Considering the above, the only critical requirement to enrol on this course is that the student must have an appropriate understanding of the English language in order to explain the concepts within the course syllabus.
