What's the difference between the NEBOSH Level 6 International Diploma and NEBOSH Level 6 National Diploma?

What's the Difference Between the NEBOSH Level 6 International Diploma and NEBOSH Level 6 National Diploma? Both versions of the NEBOSH Level 6 Diploma offer an in-depth exploration of health and safety management. They adhere to the same syllabus and examination format. The key distinction lies in the regulations and legislation covered. The NEBOSH Level 6 National Diploma is based on UK legislation, making it ideal for individuals working within the UK. The NEBOSH Level 6 International Diploma adopts a risk management approach founded on best practices and ILO codes of practice. It also incorporates local laws and cultural factors. This makes it particularly suitable for those working outside the UK or within multinational organisations.

FAQs

What is the new NEBOSH International Level 6 Diploma?

The NEBOSH International Diploma is moving to Ofqual regulation, and as a result is now known as the NEBOSH Level 6 International Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals.

The course syllabus and learning outcomes remain the same as the previous specification.
The main driver in this change was to restore all International learners the ability to use their qualification to achieve IOSH membership.

Although there is no change in syllabus, NEBOSH have made some amendments to the assessment process, such as the length of each assessment and the number of marks available.  For a full breakdown of these changes you can read our blog here:
