Book NEBOSH National Diploma - Distance Learning

NEBOSH The NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health & Safety is the UK’s premier health and safety qualification designed specifically for those who want to forge a career in health and safety. For example, it is ideal for health and safety managers, advisors and consultants. It also provides a basis for progressing to postgraduate study. Many MSc programmes run by universities in the UK accept this diploma as a full or partial entry requirement.

The course builds directly on the knowledge gained in the NEBOSH National General Certificate or the NEBOSH National Construction Certificate.

It meets the academic requirements for graduate membership of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (GradIOSH). In addition, the diploma can enable you to attain full membership of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management.

Also, combined with further experience and professional development, it meets the standards required to achieve Chartered Safety Practitioner (CMIOSH) status. If you prefer to obtain CMIOSH status via a practical, evidence based route, you may wish to consider the NVQ Level 5 Diploma.

Study Method and Course Materials

We offer the course by distance/open learning, meaning you can study for it at your own pace. As an alternative, we also offer the full course in a classroom. Additionally, this course is also available as an In-House course. Please call us on 0345 500 8811 to discuss further.

Look out for our monthly newsletter coming you way. Keeping you ahead in health and safety.

We provide all the materials needed to pass the course and will do so in a way that suits you. This programme is intended to be extremely flexible and it can be modified to meet your particular preferences and requirements. It is designed to bridge the gap between traditional distance courses and e-learning. For people that don’t want to use computers or the internet very much, it can be conducted as a traditional distance learning course complete with textbooks, written assignments and telephone support. However, for those who are keen to embrace the internet as a learning medium, a wide variety of extra support methods are on offer. These include:

  • Regular live webinars where a Phoenix tutor discusses specific content from the Diploma programme whilst you follow along and discuss with your fellow students and the tutor – these are recorded for future reference of other students
  • Interactive materials with activities, mind maps and video tutorials
  • Lists of website links to further reading and related online articles and documents
  • A Facebook group especially for Phoenix Health and Safety distance learners. This helps to promote discussion and contact between delegates
  • A Phoenix Health and Safety YouTube channel including video clips and presentations
  • Telephone, email and Skype support from expert tutors
  • Online revision interactions to test knowledge

Live Webinars included
