Tony Kelly (NEBOSH Student)


The National Diploma course accredited by the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety (NEBOSH) is a degree-level health and safety qualification intended for those who wish to develop a career in health and safety as a manager, consultant or advisor.

Many UK universities accept this qualification as prior learning that meets their entry criteria for access to advanced MSc level courses.

On this page, you will be able to book onto the Units of the course. If you are wanting to book onto an exam, please visit our NEBOSH Exam Page.

Before registering for the National Diploma, it is advisable to first complete one of the following:

On completion of the NEBOSH National Diploma, you will be entitled to use “DipNEBOSH” after your name and apply for Graduate Membership with the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (GradIOSH) and full membership to the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).

GradIOSH and IIRSM membership increases your employability with organisations looking for skilled and knowledgeable health and safety personnel.

Once you’ve secured workplace experience, the NEBOSH National Diploma also makes you eligible for distinguished, Chartered Membership of IOSH (CMIOSH) status through a process of examinations.

However, if you prefer an alternative route of evidence-based practice than exams to secure Chartered Membership, you may wish to consider the NVQ Level 5 Diploma.

Study Methods

The NEBOSH National Diploma course entails seven weeks of tuition that cover four units of learning, each of which is delivered in a classroom or workplace environment over a 6-month period.

If you are unable to commit to 7 weeks of tuition, we also provide an alternative distance learning option. Additionally, this course is also available as an In-House course. Please call us on 0345 500 8811 to discuss further. 

To support your learning and help you progress successfully towards course graduation, this programme includes additional revision workshops for each study unit.
