NEBOSH International Diploma

NEBOSH International Diploma

NEBOSHThe NEBOSH International Diploma is designed for health and safety professionals working outside of the UK. The course builds on the modules taught in the NEBOSH International General Certificate and is intended for people who want to take their career to the next level and become a health and safety manager, supervisor or officer.

The qualification also offers an excellent platform for those who wish to undertake postgraduate study. Many universities accept the Diploma as part of the entry requirement for MSc courses.

Candidates who have completed this qualification are eligible for Graduate Membership (Grad IOSH) of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). The qualification also meets the academic requirements for full membership (MIIRSM) of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM). Chartered Safety Practitioner (CMIOSH) status can then be achieved after further professional development.

For candidates who wish to study in their own time,  the course is also available via our distance learning platform.

Please note that people working in the UK can take the NEBOSH National Diploma.
