Since the NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety certificate was launched in 1989, over 160,000 have gained certification. This makes the course one of the most popular certificates.
One of the key reasons why professionals choose this certificate is because they see this as an investment in their career, allowing them to enhance their competence in the field of health and safety while making themselves more competitive in the job market. Completing the course entitles them to become an associate member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
For some, the knowledge and skills they gain from the certificate program is a proactive step toward shaping the health and safety policies enforced in their organisations and communities.
But despite the advantages offered by this certification, some professionals are still unsure about how to proceed. For many employees, enrolling in a National General Certificate course entails using up excessive resources — more than what they can readily allocate. It can be difficult to devote time, energy and effort toward studies if you already have a lot on your plate at home and at work.
