NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety

Students can choose to take the examined units in any order, and will receive a certificate denoting their achievement for each unit that they pass. When all units making up the qualification have been successfully passed, the student will receive the award parchment.

 

The NEBOSH International General Certificate (IGC) covers the principles relating to health and safety, identification and control of workplace hazards and the practical application of this knowledge.  The IGC syllabus takes a risk management approach based on best practice and international standards, such as the International Labour Organisation (ILO) codes of practice.  Local laws and cultural factors may form part of the study programme where relevant and appropriate. 

The qualification also features a practical workplace assessment.

The International General Certificate is divided into three units, each of which is assessed separately:
