Are you already one step towards your next NEBOSH Certificate?

Our unit based approach

Our unit based approach allows you to organise your learning into manageable blocks and enables you to gain recognition and certification of your achievements as you progress. It will allow you to gain additional units to achieve new qualifications without having to study or be assessed on topics that you have already covered in a previous NEBOSH qualification.

Units IGC1 is included in:

  • NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety
  • NEBOSH International Certificate in Construction Health and Safety
  • NEBOSH International Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management

Unit GC2 is included in:

• NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety
• NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety


Unit GC3 is included in:

• NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety
• NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety

So you simply need to study the additional units of each certificate syllabus to achieve your next qualification.

In addition, if you hold the International Diploma, it gives you exemption for unit IGC1, so you simply need to study the additional units in the International Certificate in Construction Health and Safety to achieve your next NEBOSH qualification.

However, you will need to have passed the above qualifications within the last five years. The five years start from the results declaration of your first successful unit or qualification.
