The recently updated NEBOSH International General Certificate is one of the most widely respected health and safety qualifications in the world, currently held by around 90,000 people.
The course is ideal if you are a manager, supervisor or employee representative based outside the UK. We also recommended the qualification to those embarking on a career in health and safety, providing a valuable foundation for further professional study.
What has changed?
NEBOSH has updated the course content to reflect current health and safety practices and the needs of today’s employers.
