NEBOSH accredits its 100th and 101st international course provider

Health, safety and environmental examinations body NEBOSH has reached another important milestone in its global development, having now accredited more than 100 international course providers.

While NEBOSH itself puts together syllabuses and sets exams and assessments, it does not deliver courses leading to its qualifications. These are offered by training companies and educational establishments who must meet rigorous standards in order to become a NEBOSH Accredited Course Provider.

There are more than 350 such course providers in the UK. However, in recent years there has been a surge in demand for NEBOSH qualifications worldwide, which has in turn led to increasing numbers of applications from overseas organisations seeking to achieve NEBOSH course provider status.

NEBOSH International manager, Stuart Naylor, said: "Ten years ago we had fewer than five course providers in three countries. Today about 40% of our assessments are taken outside of the UK and we now have more than 100 international providers. These course providers cover 32 different countries and our distance learning providers make our qualifications accessible around the world.  Last year NEBOSH qualifications were taken in 91 countries.”

"We're delighted to have achieved this. The UK is highly respected overseas for its approach to health, safety, environmental and risk management. Our qualifications are fast becoming an international mark of excellence in these fields."

Stuart went on to confirm that in October of this year NEBOSH accredited its 100th and 101st international course provider on the same day. One is based in Saudi Arabia, the other in India.
