NEBOSH General Certificate Syllabus

Because the course is designed to give a general overview of different health and safety areas, the NEBOSH General Certificate syllabus is broad and covers a number of topics. Many delegates taking the course enjoy the variety of the syllabus, and those wishing to go on and specialise into certain areas of health and safety can do so on subsequent courses such as the NEBOSH Construction Certificate and the NEBOSH Fire Certificate.

  • Health and safety foundations
