If you need help on any NEBOSH Certificate topic, just ask in here. There is no such thing as a stupid question in health and safety!

That's a 'How long is a piece of string' question.....
What are you thinking of, accredited or non-accredited?
H&S in general, or Manual Handling, Fire Safety, First Aid, any particular equipments, blah, blah, etc, etc....

If you're looking to provide through/via any awarding body, than ask them what their criteria is.
For most organisations, you'll need a PTLLS or the replacement AET, plus perhaps an Assessor qualification.

I guess it depends on what specifically you are looking to train and who.

If you are looking to deliver an IOSH Managing Safely course for example you need to be
A Member of IOSH, have a level 3 adult training qualification. (no idea if your level 3 would be suitble) and two years experience of training.

Have a look on the IOSH website.

or have a look here if you dont need something as advanced. http://www.atcrisk.co.uk/become-a-healt ... rainer.php

Hi, just pinking this email to ask, what are the practical differences between QCF Level 3 Award in Education & Training AET and Certificate in Advanced Skills for Practical Trainer Level 3?

Which will be better for a HS practitioner?

Well the first one is the replacement for PTLLS, while the other is some sort of 'practical trainer' course.
The latter is currently being offered for self study for as low as £39 :shock:
https://www.reed.co.uk/courses/advanced ... el-3/97895

Why not search out the details of the 2 courses and see how they compare?
It's highly unlikely anyone here is going to have an intimate knowledge of the two courses, unless one of the training providers here has some insights.
The whole 'qualification' system is very complex these days, across all fields.
Take First Aid for example; the 3 Day FAW and the 1 day EFAW are, from some if not all awarding bodeis, both classed as a Level 3.
How you can have 1 course 3 times the length of the other, yet give them the same Award level is beyond me..... .scratch

Hi bernicarey.
I saw that one at £39. How is this possible?

I believe that the difference will that one will offer you qualification QCF and the other only certification.
What difference will it make?

Some of the courses online at Reed are cheap but you get what you pay for.

Sometimes once you have studied, you then need to pay extra for the exams and also the certificates.

A friend of mine did an environmental qualification through them but were well aware there were other costs involved and the fee to Reeds was mostly just access to the training materials.

Well that particular course is self study and if you scroll to the bottom you'll find
*Note: This course is offered on special discounted price on REED only and does not include awarding body accreditation charges. At the end of the course, learner can claim an endorsed certificate by paying £85 accreditation fee and postal charges (£9 for UK students, £15 for outside UK).
How it's assessed I have no idea.

As to your basic question
