There are no easy routes to a NEBOSH qualification. Learners have to study hard and complete rigorous assessments, demonstrating their knowledge and understanding. That's why NEBOSH qualifications are valued by professionals and organisations around the world.

Unfortunately, some people try to cheat to gain our qualifications. NEBOSH therefore has strict processes and dedicated experts to prevent and detect malpractice.
