Is the NEBOSH General Certificate Course hard to pass?
28 May 2019
Probably the most common question our course tutors get asked on the first day is “Is the NEBOSH General Certificate hard to pass?” Our answers are variations on “It depends entirely on the effort you put in.”
You do not need any prior knowledge to complete the NEBOSH General Certificate
To put this into context, our course advisers all have to take the NEBOSH General Certificate. I even got Isla, my 16 year old daughter, to take the NEBOSH General Certificate. This demonstrates you do not need a background within Health & Safety (although having it will help). You just need to do the work, listen to your course tutor and complete the homework. Do that and you’ll pass - because NEBOSH isn’t a qualification you can ‘wing on the day.’
There are no pre-requisites for the NEBOSH General Certificate
The qualification offers an excellent understanding of foundation health and safety concepts, so it's ideal for people with responsibilities in health and safety. However, 70% of people taking the NEBOSH Certificates are working in a broad range of job roles where health and safety is not their main responsibility. It provides a basis for health and safety and is an ideal starting point to build on in your career.
