Additional Information

No previous health and safety knowledge is required, however the standard of English required by candidates studying for this programme must be such that they can both understand and articulate the concepts contained in the syllabus. NEBOSH recommends that candidates undertaking this qualification should reach a minimum standard of English equivalent to an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score of 6.0 or higher.
