What's covered in the NEBOSH Certificate? 


The 2018 syllabus update represents the role of a real-life health and safety professional. It focuses on the real, everyday risks that people encounter and the practical skills needed to manage them to help protect people and profits. 

It's divided into 2 units:

  • Unit IG1: Management of health and safety
  • Unit IG2: Practical risk assessment

How is the NEBOSH Certificate assessed?


The NEBOSH General Certificate is assessed in a two-step process:

  • IG1: An online open book exam (OBE) and supporting closing interview
  • IG2: A workplace-based practical risk assessment

You need to pass both assessments to achieve your qualification.

The open book exam replaces the 2-hour written exam for Unit IG1 of the NEBOSH General Certificate.  You can now sit both of your NEBOSH exams in your own home or another safe and suitable location.

You can find further details on the OBE exams in our Exam Hub here:
