Phoenix Health & Safety are a leading consultant and training provider of qualifications accredited by the National Examination Board of Safety and Health (NEBOSH).

The NEBOSH International Diploma is a degree-level course that builds on the training modules taught in the NEBOSH International General Certificate. It is intended for professionals looking to advance their health and safety careers in a senior role outside of the UK.

On completion of the International Diploma, candidates will become eligible for Graduate Membership to the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (GradIOSH) and full membership of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).

Furthermore, with additional professional development, prestigious Chartered Safety Practitioner (CMIOSH) status can be achieved. Alternatively, further studies can be completed in most UK universities which accept the International Diploma as prior learning that meets their entry criteria for postgraduate MSc courses.

Please note that for candidates who currently work or intend to base their careers in the UK, the NEBOSH National Diploma may be more suitable. We are accredited training providers of the both the classroom-based and distance learning National Diploma programmes.
