NEBOSH Courses and Course Modules for online remote delivery

NEBOSH have expressed their desire for people to feel safe when organising or attending a NEBOSH assessment. As a result, they have accelerated and expanded plans to offer remote and online assessments for their range of qualifications and courses.

Replacing NEBOSH in-person closed book exams

The first phase of this was the introduction of open book exams for both the NEBOSH National and International General Certificates – units NG1, IG1, NGC1 and IGC1. These replaced in-person closed book exams and enabled learners to sit their NEBOSH assessment in their own home or another safe and suitable location.

The health of our learners is paramount. We want them to feel safe when they carry out their NEBOSH assessments and the best way to do this is transform the way we do things.

David Morgan NEBOSH Interim Chief Executive


Adapting our internal processes and infrastructure to deliver more open book exams


A phased roll-out will see other qualifications follow the NEBOSH NG1 and NEBOSH NG2. With in-person assessments likely to be replaced by alternatives that will continue to provide the rigour and recognition people expect from a NEBOSH qualification.
