NEBOSH Diploma E-Learning

Post by RichC1981 » Thu Nov 08, 2018 2:42 pm

Hi All

I am thinking about signing up for an e-learning NEBOSH diploma with Astutis. I have a couple of questions if anyone can help me out?

Firstly - I read on RRC website that they recommend doing a NEBOSH general certificate first. I have around 14 years experience in construction management, and have a pretty good grasp of relevant H&S legislation, CDM, risk management etc. as relevant to that field. I have completed a 4 day IOSH managing safely course, plus various other H&S courses relevant to working on utilities sites (high voltage electricity, gas etc.). Do you think this is sufficient grounding?

Secondly - has anyone had recent experience of Astutis e-learning? Are there any others I should consider? They are not the cheapest, but still a lot less than classroom based (out of my reach as self funded), and have seen good things written on here.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Richard,

I personally did all of my studying up to Nebosh Diploma level, e-learning. It is very demanding and you have to be disciplined when studying. I started with IOSH managing safely, then onto nebosh cert then nebosh diploma. I think that without doing the cert I would have struggled with the dip, but again that's your choice. The cert does give you a good grounding in h&s.
Before this I also had over 15 years in construction. If your brave go for the dip??
I studied with Sheilds and found them good.

Hope this helps

Don't underestimate the time, effort and self-motivation required to do a Diploma over distance learning. It is a real struggle!

If you are going down that route I'd advise you to get the NGC under your belt first - you'll need a solid grounding not only in H&S but also the "NEBOSH way".

As far as course providers go, pick one with decent tutor support. I've have posts removed before for naming the company I used who basically took the money and left me to it so I won't name then but is sounds a bit like Santa...

Good luck with whatever you decide.
