So you simply need to study the additional units of each certificate syllabus to achieve your next qualification. It will allow you to gain additional units to achieve new qualifications without having to study or be assessed on topics that you have already covered in a previous NEBOSH qualification.
However, you will need to have passed the above qualifications within the last five years. The five years start from the results declaration of your first successful unit or qualification.
