NEBOSH Certificates

NEBOSH Certificate courses are studied online, known as eLearning.

Students can access their materials from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Learning materials are studied online using our intuitive elearning platform. Students will find interactive learning activities, quizzes and supporting documents to aid their studies. All our NEBOSH Certificates are tutor supported. NEBOSH Certificates are assessed by examinations, practical inspection reports and tutor discussions.

NVQ Certificates

NVQs use an online platform where students submit their documents as evidence, towards a competency framework. Once enough evidence is submitted, assessed and verified, students will successfully pass the NVQ. NVQ Certificates are supported by dedicated SHEilds NVQ Assessors.

Our NEBOSH eLearning courses are studied using our flexible and convenient online training platform. Rather than being tied down to a classroom schedule, you can do your studying as and when it suits you, with 24/7 accessibility to your online course. Our interactive courses offer a variety of study aids, including a mix of audio, video, photographs and text. With interactive learning materials and quizzes to complete as you go, you can track your progress and learn at a pace that suits your learning style.

After completing your studies, you must complete the final assessments. For NEBOSH courses this requires you to complete the OBE (open book examinations) and if necessary the practical elements.

NVQs are passed by satisfying your NVQ assessor of your competency against the course framework criteria.
