NEBOSH International General Certificate Exams

Your guide to sitting your exam with Astutis

NEBOSH_Logo_BlackThe NEBOSH International General Certificate is assessed in a two step process:

  • IG1: An online open book exam (OBE) and supporting 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.

NEBOSH Certificate Open Book Exam Process

You'll be emailed login details to the NEBOSH online exam portal 3 days before your exam date. You should take this time to ensure your login details are working, get to know the platform and address any challenges before your exam day. 

Exam day

Your open book exam paper will be available from 11:00 UK-time. At this point, you should download your question paper and answer sheet to your computer to complete. 

You will have 24 hours to complete and submit your exam, although it is expected to take you around 3 hours to complete. 

Closing interviews

Closing interviews are held within the weeks following your Open Book Exam. The interview should last around 10 minutes and will be completed online via Microsoft Teams. 

Don't worry, the interview doesn't impact your marks for your paper. It's simply there to confirm your identity and make sure it was you who completed the exam. 

Your NEBOSH Certificate Exam Results

Results for your exam paper should be emailed to you within 50 working days of your exam date. As before, your full qualification will not be complete until you pass your IG2 Practical Assessment.
