"I recently received the NEBOSH International General Certificate training in Abu Dhabi and thought it was an excellent course. The trainer was very experienced and was an excellent communicator, he focused on exam techniques and we all had plenty of practice with the types of questions that could appear in the exam. The course was delivered in a very engaging way with lots of short videos and examples from industry that really brought the content to life. The course helped to fill gaps in my health, safety and environmental knowledge and I am very glad that I took it. The logistics and organisation were also excellent."
