To a point, but quite frankly, it depends why you are seeking a higher level qualification.
If it's just to get a certain membership level of an organisation e.g. GradIOSH, then once you've done that, what does it matter. You're just going to tell an employer you're GradIOSH.

I have studied with NEBOSH and am now 2/3 of the way through the NCRQ Diploma and for me there is no contest. The NCRQ is far more like real life and relevant to how I work every day

Interesting analogy. Well known and hideously expensive but doesn't do anything more than tell the time??

I prefer the vaccuum cleaner analogy. NEBOSH is the Hoover, been around for years with no competition, everyone has one. And then along comes the Dyson / NCRQ, which offers people something innovative and more suited to their needs and takes the market by storm....

Oh! Don't think this can be a justifiable conclusion Q! Certainly isn't what I have found to be the case judging by my dealings with this forum and communications with our members etc. over the past 13 years. ;)

Have to politely disagree... I went down the NCRQ route and it was solely a cost consideration. There are a myriad of reasons for people to study in the ways they do and i don't think it's fair to generalise in this way.

All three ways have pros and cons and all three deserve exactly the same amount of respect.

I know safety professionals who have done NEBOSH dip and recently finished NCRQ Dip, and preference was NCRQ. Everyone's learning style is different and for me, NCRQ was the way I went.

For people who say NCRQ is the easy route - if only you could see the final assignment! You are allowed 6 weeks to complete it, and believe me, it will take me right up to the 6 week deadline ,and thats having a week and a half annual leave to complete it also!

I have done NEBOSH cert, and I will openly say I much prefer NCRQ way of learning, not because it is easier - quite the opposite, but it gives you the opportunity to study at your own pace, and no looming exams with months of waiting to hear about results.

Regards
Adam
