What are the Benefits for Employers?
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.
This course can be completed in as little as 10-days, however, we will initially give you 3-months to complete this online training course including your exam day.
This modern qualification combines activities, learning and interactive materials to provide you with an interesting and engaging experience. It focuses on key skills that means you can instantly apply the knowledge you gain and add value to your existing or future employer.
Assessment is a two-step process:
- A question paper to assess what you know
- A practical risk assessment to assess what you can do
Both assessments are marked by external examiners appointed by NEBOSH. These examiners are chosen for their experience and expertise to ensure that learners are assessed by the very best from our industry.
English language skill level 6 or higher in IELTS, or equivalent is recommended, but not mandatory, for those whom the first language is not English.

What our customers say?
"A brilliant course delivered in a professional way. This course content, along with the qualification, set me up for a career in health and safety which I am still progressing in now."
"Chris, Dean. I just wanted to let you know that I secured a position as a project engineer for an oil and gas company called Stork Technical Services. This was in no small part helped by the knowledge gained on the construction course. At interview I was able to demonstrate a good understanding of health and safety which I gained from both the general and construction phases of my course. I just want to thank you both for the excellent way in which the course was set up in Paderborn and Deepcut and for the great instruction from both Chris and Nik. Being awarded a distinction was the cherry on the top. Please pass my thanks to Nik. I will certainly recommend BV Associates."
