How is it assessed?

Units NGC1 and GC2 are taught units each assessed by a two-hour written examination.  Each written examination consists of ten ‘short-answer’ questions and one ‘long-answer’ question. All questions are compulsory.   Candidate scripts are marked by external examiners appointed by NEBOSH.

Unit NGC3 is assessed by one two-hour practical examination carried out in the candidate's own workplace. The assessment must normally be taken within 10 working days of a written examination.  The practical examination is internally assessed by the programme organiser and externally moderated by NEBOSH.

Candidates will be awarded a unit certificate for each unit passed. Once a candidate has successfully completes all three units (NGC1, GC2 and GC3), the overall qualification parchment will be issued.
