The latest qualifications have been designed to cover what a learner needs to know, so we are moving away from exemptions (common units). So general health and safety content is covered in the National or International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety. Whereas the specialist qualifications (such as Construction and Fire Certificates) contain content that is relevant to the discipline.
However, learners can continue to register to the 2014 specification of the National and International Certificate in Construction Health and Safety until 31 December 2021*. Learners must be registered to the new specification after this date.
Learners can also continue to register to the 2014 specifications of the National and International Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management until 31 December 2021*. Learners must be registered to the new specification after this date.
*This date is subject to change following SQA accreditation of the new/revised specifications.
