NEBOSH National General Certificate
The NEBOSH National General Certificate covers the main legal requirements for health and safety in the UK.
The course teaches the identification and control of workplace hazards, and explores the practical application of this knowledge. The syllabus is mapped to the National Occupational Standards for Health and Safety owned by ENTO. No previous health and safety knowledge is required but candidates should note that assessment involves writing a short report.
The qualification is divided into 3 units, each of which is assessed separately.
* The GC3 course can be conducted in your workplace once you've completed the previous two modules
