The Level 5 NVQ Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety Practice is the UK’s premier vocational qualification designed specifically for safety professionals who want to attain chartered status of IOSH (CMIOSH) through a practical, evidence-based route as opposed to an academic course.

It is intended for those who wish to forge a career in health and safety as advisors, managers or consultants. There are no entry requirements, but candidates must be aged 19 or over and will need to demonstrate they can produce evidence across the standard by completing our initial assessment prior to being accepted on to the programme (please see below).

The qualification meets the academic requirements for Graduate Membership of IOSH. With additional experience and initial professional development, those who get the diploma can also attain Chartered Safety Practitioner status.

This course costs £1,795 + VAT. Included in the price are enrolment fees, unlimited support for 18 months with a fully qualified and competent assessor and final certification.
