The Nebosh is the Rolex my friend,
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.
