Top tips

Give yourself the greatest chance of success and make sure you are prepared before the day of your examination:

  • Study and revise
    Make sure you thoroughly understand the topic so that you apply your knowledge to the unfamiliar scenario presented in the examination
  • Prepare an environment that:
    • Is comfortable with a desk and chair
    • Has got room for your notes, books and other resources
    • Is free from distractions
    • Is well lit
    • Has a good internet connection available
    • Is not too hot or too cold
  • Read through the resources provided on this page
  • Familiarise yourself with the online examination platform before the day of your examination.
    Registered learners will receive an email with instructions on how to do this and further information about the platform can be found in the Technical Learner Guide in the Resources section below.

Important information

  • If you have previously taken a NEBOSH digital assessment your login details will remain the same. If you have forgotten your password select 'Forgotten your username or password?'. Your username is your learner number. 
  • Your assessment submission must be in PDF file format. From September 2023 onwards, any submissions which are not in a PDF file format will be declined and will not be marked.
