The NEBOSH National General Certificate covers the main legal requirements

It suits Managers, supervisors and staff from all types of organisations who
need a broad understanding of health and safety issues and manage risks

Content & Examples: The qualification is divided into three units, each
of which is assessed separately:

•Management of Health and Safety (NGC1)
•Controlling workplace hazards
•Health and safety practical application (GC3)

The NEBOSH National General Certificate meets the academic requirements
for Technician membership (TechIOSH) of the Institute of Occupational Safety and
Health (IOSH) and Associate membership (AIIRSM) of the International Institute
of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).
 The NEBOSH National General
Certificate has been accredited and credit rated by the Scottish Qualifications

(SCQF) at SCQF Level 6 with 15 SCQF credit points.

 SCQF Level 6 is comparable to NQF/QCF Level 3 in England, Wales and

No previous health and safety knowledge is required but candidates should note the assessment includes a requirement to write a short report and complete 2 written exams.
Units NGC1 and GC2 are taught units each assessed by a two-hour written examination.  Each written examination consists of ten ‘short-answer’ questions and one ‘long-answer’ question. All questions are compulsory.   Candidate scripts are marked by external examiners appointed by NEBOSH. Unit NGC3 is assessed by one two-hour practical examination carried out in the candidate's own workplace. The assessment must normally be taken within 10 working days of a written examination.  The practical examination is internally assessed by the Lincoln College and externally moderated by NEBOSH. Candidates will be awarded a unit certificate for each unit passed. Once a candidate has successfully completes all three units (NGC1, GC2 and GC3), the overall qualification parchment will be issued.
