Who is this for?
Managers, supervisors and staff from all types of organisations who need a broad understanding of health and safety issues. The certificate helps them manage risks effectively. Many people take the NEBOSH General Certificate as the basis for a career in health and safety or to improve their employment prospects in other industries. It provides a valuable overview, and is a sound basis for further professional study.
Many larger organisations choose the NEBOSH National General Certificate as a key part of their supervisors’ or management development programme. By ensuring that line managers have a sound understanding of the principles of risk management, they build an effective safety culture in the company. Smaller organisations, operating in lower risk environments, often choose the NEBOSH National General certificate as the appropriate qualification for the manager taking the lead on health and safety issues.

Warrant Officer 1 Dean St Clair Finch (Army)
"I must say the standard of the instruction by Nik Taylor is second to none, he made the learning environment comfortable and put all the learners at ease. His knowledge and the way he brings to life and easy to understand is excellent. He was available 24/7 for anything that needed clarifying by the students. The exam was also run to the highest standard by Claire. Please pass my thanks to both and I can’t wait to see them again on my fire course in Feb!"
