How is it assessed?

There are no entry requirements for this qualification, though the achievement of the NEBOSH International General Certificate or direct equivalent prior to undertaking the Diploma course is highly recommended. 

The standard of English required by students studying for the NEBOSH International Diploma must be such that they can both understand and articulate the concepts contained in the syllabus. 

The qualification is divided into four units, three assessed by written examinations of three hours’ duration (Units IA, IB and IC) with the assignment unit designed to test knowledge across the syllabus, assessing application of health and safety theory and practice (Unit ID/Unit DNI).   

Students will receive a unit certificate for each unit passed.  On successful completion of all units making up the NEBOSH International Diploma, students will receive the overall qualification parchment. 


We have provided further guidance to help students who are completing both the Unit ID (August 2011 Specification) Assignment and the Unit DNI (November 2015 Specification Assignments
