NEBOSH courses offered at PETA

PETA offers a range of NEBOSH courses, delivered by their team of highly skilled, qualified and experienced health and safety trainers. The courses are taught one day a week for 13 weeks, so the teaching is spread out, giving the learner time to absorb the content of each session, apply the learning and develop their skills.

The courses are offered at PETA’s Portsmouth-based training centre, and we can also provide a company-sponsored option, where one of our trainers will come to your workplace and deliver the course to a group of employees, which is an excellent way of building a peer approach to improving health and safety management in your business.

A company-sponsored option also means that the courses can be tailored to the requirements of your business and enhance your employees’ learning experience.
