Who is the NEBOSH Level 6 International Diploma distance learning course for?

Our NEBOSH Level 6 International Diploma distance learning course is for self-motivated, independent learners who prefer a traditional learning method using written course materials.

We know that not everyone likes videos, games and technology. Our distance learning course is perfect if you like to learn in a quiet environment where you can read, write, and analyse information in your own time.

Our NEBOSH Level 6 International Diploma distance learning course is fully accredited and provides the same qualification as a classroom course.

How does distance learning work?

Once you’ve enrolled as a distance learner with us, you’ll be sent login details to our award-winning LMS. Here you can access a study timetable and download all your course materials straight to your device.

Our digital PDF materials have plenty features that help you learn, including:

  • Bookmarks to help you navigate quickly to chapters of your course.
  • A search-and-find functionality so you can easily find crucial information and topics.
  • Text highlight features to help you focus on essential points.
  • Sticky notes for you to add your thoughts and annotations.
  • A read-out-loud functionality to have your notes read back to you.

You can also access support resources, register for webinars, and connect with other learners in discussion forums straight from your LMS account.

Don't worry - you're certainly not on your own! You’ll receive regular communication throughout your course from your CMIOSH tutor, along with friendly reminders when it’s time to register for your assessment to help keep you on track.

How is the NEBOSH Level 6 International Diploma distance learning course assessed?

The NEBOSH Level 6 International Diploma takes a practical approach to learning and is assessed entirely through practical work and scenario-based questions.

DI1 is assessed with a practical assignment split into 4 sections:

  • Scenario based questions
  • Work based activities
  • Reflective statements
  • A short research project

Units DI2 and DI3 are assessed with case studies and scenario based questions.

You will have 2-4 weeks to complete your assessments and submit your work to the NEBOSH online portal. You should spend around 40 hours on your DI1 assignment and 20 hours each on your DI2 and DI3 assignments.

What is the new NEBOSH International Level 6 Diploma?

The NEBOSH International Diploma is moving to Ofqual regulation, and as a result is now known as the NEBOSH Level 6 International Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals.

The course syllabus and learning outcomes remain the same as the previous specification.
The main driver in this change was to restore all International learners the ability to use their qualification to achieve IOSH membership.

Although there is no change in syllabus, NEBOSH have made some amendments to the assessment process, such as the length of each assessment and the number of marks available.  For a full breakdown of these changes you can read our blog here:
