NEBOSH International Oil and Gas Certificate Syllabus
The NEBOSH International Technical Certificate in Oil and Gas Safety will provide you with the underpinning knowledge necessary for the effective management of risks associates with oil and gas operations. It builds upon the knowledge gained from achieving the NEBOSH General Certificates in Occupational Health and Safety.
Overall learning outcomes
On completion of the Oil and Gas certificate, you should be able to:
- Apply your knowledge and skills of operational process safety to effectively influence operational safety decisions in both familiar and unfamiliar environments.
- Critically analyse and evaluate both quantitative and qualitative information.
