Frequently Asked Questions

Generally, Diploma level health and safety training is suitable for practitioners who want to progress in their career, who ideally possess a certificate level qualification.

Diplomas are aimed at those with existing background knowledge in safety management within their industry. However, there are no entry requirements restricting those without prior knowledge from enrolling onto Diploma level courses. It is advisable to first study a certificate level qualification before attempting a diploma.

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 learning materials and quizzes to complete as you go, you can track your progress and learn at a pace that suits your learning style.

NVQ Diplomas are a little different, where evidence is simply collected and uploaded to an online platform, which is then used to check-off against a competency frame work. Once all evidence is submitted, reviewed and approved, students will pass the NVQ.

To help students successfully complete a Diploma level qualification and meet their educational goals, we suggest they thoroughly review and understand the course syllabus and learning outcomes. Our expert tutors are there to help and support along the way. Ultimately, dedication and a commitment to study is the key to attaining a high pass rate. To increase the chance of passing a Diploma level course, we recommend that students first complete a certificate level qualification, such as a NEBOSH International or National General Certificate, to gain relevant core knowledge.
