Is the NEBOSH General Certificate difficult?
25 July 2022
The course is very challenging. It covers all aspects of health and safety management regulation, management systems, risk assessment, audits and hazard control in all types of workplaces. However, RISK has developed the NEBOSH Personal Learning Zone which supports our online, tutor-led NEBOSH Certificate courses - which consistently deliver above average pass rates.
80-120 hours of study assessed by Open Book Exam, Risk Assessment and Written Report
The NEBOSH General Certificate course is broken down into two core modules, each assessed independently. Where most providers want you to sit the whole 10 days consecutively (80-120 hours of study)- because it's easier for them, RISK have designed their NEBOSH Certificate courses in a format which provides learners with the best possible chance of passing. This is evidenced with above national average pass rates since 2015. Here we set out to explain how RISK make the NEBOSH General Certificate less difficult by focusing our delivery around your needs.
How RISK tailor their NEBOSH General Certificate course to make learning easier
#1 - Breaking the course in two
The NEBOSH General Certificate is made up of two separate online course modules, NG1 & NG2. To give the best possible learning experience RISK provide both modules as standalone courses. The advantage is that you study your NG1 5 day online course and take your Open Book Exam whilst the knowledge is fresh. Whether you choose to take a break from studying or move on immediately to take your NG2 5 day online course is yours. The NG2 module is assessed by submitting a practical Risk Assessment and Written Report 10 days after your NG2 online course ends.
#2 - Providing structured learning support
The NEBOSH Personal Learning Zone is unique to RISK. It provides all the course materials and is accessible as soon as your course joining instructions hit your 'inbox'. This means you get everything you need to prepare before the course starts. The RISK Personal Learning Zone portal is designed to enhance your NEBOSH Certificate learning experience and provides a clear study framework, interactive learning checks, access to past exams and realistic scenarios to test your knowledge.
It provides a unique combination of highly effective support tools, structured learning frameworks and practical revision exercises.
