There are two assessments that must be undertaken and delegates have 5 years to successfully obtain both of the required modules:

  • Unit NG1 includes an open book exam*, which you do from home.
  • Unit NG2 is a practical risk assessment, carried out at your workplace and is longer than the previous GC3 assessment.

*Each delegate MUST attend a short closing interview after the open book examination.  The purpose is to confirm that the work submitted is their own and that they did not have any assistance in completing the NEBOSH assessment.

Both assessments are marked by external examiners appointed by NEBOSH. These examiners are chosen for their experience and expertise to ensure that learners are assessed by the very best from our industry.
