Changes to NEBOSH Cert

Post by CAD » Tue Sep 17, 2019 7:47 am

It appears that they have changed the NEBOSH Certificate as of last week.

From what I can tell it's one exam and one practical, other than that I don't know any other details.

I've contacted NEBOSH as I need to resit NGC1, and they have said there will be a transition period but couldn't confirm what that would be.

They also said that the additional qualifications such as the construction certificate will be changing as it may not be possible to use the NCG1 portion toward that. But they said a final decision was pending.

Thought I would flag it up for those looking to study via NEBOSH.

Reading between the lines for me personally, I've gone from having 5 years to complete the Certificate to a few months it appears. So I better get studying.

My understanding is that the second part is a risk assessment project(very close to what NCRQ are asking for). Current students will be given sufficient time to complete their studies and resits although not likely to be 5 years, but again my understanding is that it will be in years not months.
