How is the NEBOSH Certificate assessed?

NEBOSH has introduced open book exams for both the NEBOSH National and International General Certificates – units NG1, IG1, NGC1 and IGC1. This replaces in-person closed book exams and enables learners to sit their NEBOSH assessment in their own home or another safe and suitable location.

Assessment is a two-step process.

  • An online open-book assessment
  • A 3-hour practical risk assessment to demonstrate the knowledge

You need to pass both assessments to achieve your NEBOSH International General Certificate.  

Is the NEBOSH Certificate right for you? 

The NEBOSH Certificate is for anyone who needs a broad understanding of health and safety to be able to manage day-to-day risks as part of their role, such as Health and Safety Officers/Advisors, general Managers, HR Managers, Directors, Security workers and Public Service workers. 

It's also the perfect starting point for anyone looking to start a career in health and safety. Because of the valuable introduction to health and safety, it offers a solid foundation for further study.
