NEBOSH recognises that great learning experiences equip learners to make a difference to health, safety and the environment in the workplace. We are therefore committed to ensuring that our qualifications and courses offer the best learner experience by putting your needs first.
Every learner must register with a NEBOSH accredited Learning Partner and undertake the relevant learning before taking an assessment and gaining a qualification. It is not possible to self-study for a NEBOSH qualification.
Our global network of Learning Partners provide excellent learning and support to our learners and will help you prepare for your assessments. Our Learning Partner Programme is a quality assurance programme that aims to recognise those Learning Partners who can prove that they meet the principles that represent global best practice in the provision of course tuition and support.
The Learning Partner Programme introduces a standard that must be met by all Learning Partners and we also ask our Learning Partners to commit to continuously improving the learner experience. This allows us to recognise our leading Learner Partners for their quality tuition, innovative delivery and excellent learner support. If you would like to learn more about the programme please download our guide, Learning Partner Programme: Guidance for Learners.
When choosing a NEBOSH qualification, you should consider what you want to gain from your studies, what level of study would suit you, and if the qualification sits well with your long term career aspirations. All of our qualification pages include course details and syllabus guides, helping you choose the right qualification for you.
Once you have chosen which qualification you would like to study, you will need to select a Learning Partner who offers the qualification in the way you want to study.
We recommend that you explore your options before registering with a Learning Partner as it is an important personal choice. You may want to contact one or more Learning Partners to discuss any questions you have about their services.
The factors you may wish to consider include:
- Mode of Study – Options available include face to face, distance learning, in-company training and elearning. Has one method of learning been more effective for you in the past?
- Course Structure – If you opt for classroom training, would you prefer day or evening classes, block release or a modular course?
- Location – NEBOSH examinations are taken in over 130 countries. Being able to study and sit your examinations locally may be important for you, or you may be interested in a qualification which can be studied and assessed entirely remotely.
- On-going support – Will the support provided during your course and in the run up to your assessments match your expectations?
- Cost – Each Learning Partner sets their own fees to reflect the service offered. We recommend you contact a number of Learning Partners to establish what their fees are and what is included in the fee.
The Where to Study search facility can help you to shortlist Learning Partners that match your personal requirements. You can search for Learning Partners accredited to offer your chosen qualifications. You can also filter the search results by location and mode of study preferences.
