NEBOSH: National General Certificate in Occupational Health & Safety online course


The National General Certificate is the most widely held health and safety qualification in the UK, and is awarded by NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health), an independent and internationally recognised examining board and awarding body.

The NGC is invaluable for managers, supervisors and others from a wide range of organisations needing a broad understanding of health and safety issues and the ability to manage risks effectively.

Safety4Business offers learners the opportunity to undertake the entire NGC course of study online, utilising a wide range of exciting and interactive learning methods that include video tutoring, webinars, exercises, simulations and course notes. Also included are regular self-assessments and mock examination questions that aim to ensure that the learner is fully prepared for the formal written examinations and practical assessment that lead to the Certificate. Every student registering for our online NGC course is also assigned a member of our NEBOSH support team, whose role is to make contact and support and monitor students’ progress throughout their learning experience.

This course is brought to you by the same Safety4Business team that created the immensely successful online IOSH Working Safely and Managing Safely courses. This means we have a wealth of knowledge about how to design online courses that are enjoyable, easy to use and, most importantly, effective in enabling the learner to pass the examinations and assessments necessary to achieve their academic goals.
