SHEilds offers comprehensive NEBOSH training courses that provide students with the knowledge and skills they need to become qualified health and safety professionals. Our courses are designed to prepare you for your examinations and assessments, and we offer a range of eLearning resources such as podcasts, videos and images to help you learn in a way that suits you best. Our expert tutors are also on hand to provide you with support and guidance throughout your learning journey. Whether you are looking to build your career or enhance your existing skills, SHEilds has the right NEBOSH training course for you.

Choosing the right course to achieve your career goals depends upon your existing qualifications and experience. Selecting the right level is essential to maximise your success.

NEBOSH Award courses are designed for those who wish to introduce themselves to health and safety, NEBOSH Certificates are typically suited for those actively working within the industry and NEBOSH Diplomas are aimed at those who would like to progress their career further or build upon their existing knowledge to excel in their field.

Here at SHEilds, we have a dedicated team of expert course advisors to assist you in selecting the most suitable qualification(s) to meet your needs and ambitions.

Normally, we recommend students have underpinning core health and safety knowledge and suggest studying a NEBOSH General Certificate or Diploma, before branching out into specialist subjects areas, such as construction, fire, environmental, oil and gas, process safety, etc.

A great option for those new to the industry are NEBOSH Awards as they are designed for those who wish to introduce themselves to health and safety.

NEBOSH Certificate courses are designed for those with limited or no experience in health and safety.

NEBOSH Diploma courses are designed for those that ideally, already have previous knowledge or experience with health and safety management.

Ultimately, NEBOSH Diplomas are a higher level and a lot more work is involved when undertaking course studies. Examinations / assessment is considerably more challenging as NEBOSH Diplomas are equivalent to University Degree level qualifications.

NEBOSH Training is either generalised to cover a wide scope such as the General Certificates / Diploma or specifically focused on particular areas of health and safety management, such as construction, fire, environmental safety and risk management.

You can study NEBOSH with SHEilds from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection.

There are three primary levels of NEBOSH courses, which are Award, Certificate and Diploma levels.

  • Awards are a similar level to High School Diplomas (GCSE’s in the UK) – Equivalent to Level 2 on the NQF.
  • Certificates are comparable to a Certificate of Higher Education (A-levels in the UK) – Equivalent to Level 3 on the NQF.
  • Diplomas are akin to a Bachelors Degree – Equivalent to Level 6 on the NQF.

NEBOSH courses are assessed by taking in-person examinations and / or assessments, which are set by NEBOSH’s own professionally qualified staff. External examiners also assist with assessment; most of whom are Chartered Safety and Health Practitioners (CMIOSH) operating within an industry, the public sector or in enforcement.

All NEBOSH courses are assessed by some form of examination and / or practical assessment. Recently NEBOSH have updated assessment criteria on a number of their qualifications. Therefore, we recommend you refer back to the specific syllabus for the course you are interested in. Alternatively, contact us and speak with an expert course advisor to assist with your options.
