How to study the NEBOSH Diploma

There are three different ways to take the NEBOSH Diploma. The method you choose will depend on your circumstances and how you prefer to learn. 

Online E-learning 

Online training is ideal if you are looking to fit your studying around your current lifestyle. It does require a degree of self-motivation and discipline, but it allows you the flexibility to take the course in your own time and at your own pace. All you need is an internet connection and a laptop, and you’re good to go! You’ll also have access to a remote tutor for support whenever you need it, so you’ll never be on your own throughout your training.

Virtual Classroom learning  

If you prefer a more traditional, tutor-led approach to your training and value interaction with fellow health and safety professionals, then, a virtual classroom course may be the best option for you.  

Be guided through your course by a CMIOSH tutor and collaborate with others in our virtual classrooms.

Distance learning 

Distance learning offers a more traditional form of self-study. You’ll have access to optimised PDF materials to study in your own time and at your own pace. You won’t get the same level of interaction as online learning, so you’ll need to be motivated to challenge your own understanding. However, you’ll still have access to a tutor for help and guidance whenever you need it.

FAQ

The NEBOSH General Certificate is a great place to start with your health and safety learning. It covers a broad range of topics and is the ideal course for those looking to start their health and safety career. 

The NEBOSH Diploma is a more advanced course aimed at those who are already working in a health and safety role.  

The NEBOSH National Diploma qualification meets the academic requirements to apply for Graduate Membership (Grad IOSH) of Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). It is the first step to becoming a Chartered Health and Safety Practitioner as a chartered Member of IOSH (CMIOSH). The next step is completing a Skills Development Portfolio. Once you have passed all of the units you will also need to maintain your continuing professional development (CPD). You will be asked to attend a peer review interview.

When you pass your first unit, your enrolment period is automatically re-set and you have a further 5 years to pass the remaining two units. In other words, your first unit has a shelf-life of 5 years. If you do not pass the remaining two units within 5 years, your first unit will expire and you will have to retake this unit in order to pass the qualification.
