The NEBOSH Diplomas have a five year enrollment period. A students enrolment commences on the date of their first examination registration.
Upon the successful completion of the students first assessment, the enrolment date changes to the declaration date of this unit. The successful unit is then given a unit validity. The Unit Validity is 5 years (A unit is valid for five years from the declaration, this is the date printed on the unit certificate).
NEBOSH does appreciate that there are some circumstances that prevent students from continuing their studies for a period of time. To allow students the opportunity to complete their qualification NEBOSH does allow students to apply for an extension to their unit validity period . These requests are considered on a case by case basis.
