How long is a NEBOSH certificate valid for?

Once you have successfully completed all the units of a NEBOSH qualification, it will never expire. There is no need to retake the exams after a certain period, but there is a very definite need to keep your knowledge of health and safety matters and risk management fresh and up to date.

Constantly changing

This is a field in a permanent state of flux, with changing laws, new regulations and updated standards set by professional bodies. To keep pace with such a dynamic world, the syllabuses that lead to NEBOSH qualifications are renewed regularly.

That is why NEBOSH (and sheer common sense) strongly recommend that you enrol for a course leading to the latest version of your qualification every few years. It’s the simplest, most effective way to ensure you are fully aware of what has changed since you took the exam and gained the NEBOSH qualification.

Taking such refresher courses is entirely optional. But rarely has something optional been so essential. Both the safety and wellbeing of people in the workplace and the health of your career depend on up-to-date knowledge and awareness of the latest issues.

See what’s changed at a glance

Perhaps you are not sure whether you need to refresh your knowledge or not. Here’s an easy way to check. Simply take a look at what the current course covers – and see how much it differs from what you studied when you gained your NEBOSH qualification.
