Not only is the NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health one of the most comprehensive and prestigious of Certificate-level health and safety qualifications, but is in fact one of the most sought-after and respected of any health and safety training course available today. There are a number of reasons for this, but it is primarily a combination of the status associated with a NEBOSH accredited course and the sheer amount of worthwhile information which is covered on the course syllabus. This covers all sorts of topics which are likely to be relevant to the most common places of work, including hazardous substances, manual handling, psychological health issues and the requirement for compliance with applicable legislation to name just a few.

There is also a range of other health and safety training courses and qualifications available too.
Many delegates who successfully achieve the NEBOSH General Certificate will go on to progress further with their health and safety studies and education, either by undertaking a NEBOSH Fire or Construction conversion course within five years which negates the need to repeat the NGC1 unit, or by choosing to enrol upon the NEBOSH Diploma qualification which is one of the most esteemed and exalted of all the health and safety qualifications that can be obtained. This behemoth of a course is spread over approximately seven weeks and is equivalent in stature to a degree. Needless to say, only those who are truly committed to their studies will stand a chance of achieving it.
