Yes, it is possible to move to a new Learning Partner.
Provide your new Learning Partner with your Learner Number and let them know that you have achieved or partially completed NEBOSH qualifications before. This will help prevent the creation of a duplicate learner record.
The new qualifications have been designed to cover what a learner actually needs to know. So general health and safety content is covered in the National or International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety. Whereas the specialist qualifications (Construction and Fire Certificates) contain content that is relevant to the discipline.
NEBOSH stands for the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health.
We are an independent examination board delivering vocational qualifications in health, safety and environmental practice and management.

If you are unable to locate a learning partner in a location near to you, many NEBOSH Learning Partners deliver our qualifications by distance and elearning. These Learning Partners can also be found by searching in the Where to Study section of our website.

If you are a diploma holder and would like to join but have not received an invitation, maybe because your email address has changed since you completed your studies, we can arrange this for you.
