Exam booking & dates


Janine, Fire Industry, Office Manager, NEBOSH National Diploma:

“I really enjoyed studying the NEBOSH Diploma with Phoenix. It has allowed me to significantly develop in my job role and I am now more aware of the regulations and responsibilities within my organisation. The NEBOSH Diploma has made me feel more confident in writing risk assessments as I can apply specialist, in-depth knowledge regarding appropriate controls.

The support from Phoenix is incredible. I studied via distance learning and I was struggling with some elements of the unit, the tutors contacted me straight away to guide me through the course material. The practice papers were marked quickly with immediate feedback throughout. Without the support from Phoenix in the lead up to the exam, I would have struggled to achieve the result that I did.

Thanks to the NEBOSH Diploma, my opportunities for career progression within the Health and Safety field have increased. Having this NEBOSH qualification also gives my organisation and its customers confidence that I take health and safety seriously.

Thank you, Phoenix, for the support and encouragement provided by the tutors, they are on hand any time for help and guidance.”
