NEBOSH combines units
21 November 2013
From January 2014, NEBOSH will be making changes to the National and International General Certificates in Occupational Health and Safety.
Candidates who hold the NEBOSH National General Certificate must take all three unit assessments of the NEBOSH International General Certificate to gain the additional qualification. This also applies to anyone with a NEBOSH International General Certificate, who wants to gain their NEBOSH National General Certificate.
To ease this process for current and potential candidates, NEBOSH has combined two of the three units as their content is relevant anywhere in the world. The Controlling Workplace Hazards units (NGC2/IGC2) will now be known as GC2 and GC3 will replace the Practical Application units (NGC3/IGC3). The Health and Safety Management (NGC1 and IGC1) will remain separate.
