The open book examination (OBE) has been introduced for a number of certificate level qualifications.
Unlike an invigilated paper-based examination, the OBE allows learners to sit their NEBOSH assessment in their own home or another safe and suitable location.
This area of our website will provide resources and information for learners preparing to undertake open book examinations for NEBOSH General Certificate examinations.
Results will be issued 50 working days from the examination date and sent to the email address registered to your learner record.
The following OBE dates and corresponding results dates have been confirmed:
