The NEBOSH National General Certificate course is split into two five-day units. The two separately assessed units can be completed over two consecutive or separate five-day weeks.

NEBOSH General Certificate Course FAQs

Which companies do you work with?
Safety Now has experience in a vast range of sectors, such as manufacturing, engineering, social housing, nuclear, pharmaceutical and petrochemicals. However, we can help practically any company with NEBOSH certification. Our clients range from SMEs to Blue Chip companies – anyone with managers and supervisors that need to embed safety and health within their teams.
Is the NEBOSH General Certificate worth it?
NEBOSH certification does more than tick boxes for your managers and supervisors. It improves safety throughout your company, provides greater peace of mind, enhances your reputation, and boosts productivity with fewer hours lost due to sickness and accidents.
How long is a NEBOSH certificate valid for?
NEBOSH certificates do not come with an expiry date. Once you have gained one, it will remain valid. That said, unit validity does expire after five years, making regular refresher courses a good idea to stay on top of the latest knowledge and best practices.
