NEBOSH General Certificate

Lighthouse Safety Training NEBOSHThe NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety training course outlines general health and safety responsibilities. It provides a valuable overview, and is a sound basis for further professional study and is a Level 3 qualification.

With our pass rate still in the high 90% margins, if you or someone you know is thinking of attending the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) General Certificate course, then Lighthouse is the sensible choice.

Our lead tutor is a NEBOSH Examiner of some years experience, he knows how this course should be taught. They spend time coaching candidates, not only the approach to take with regards to exam success, but on how to apply what is being taught to real work time scenarios, so people leave the course with the confidence on how to use the information in the real world.

Be under no misunderstanding, this is an intense learning program, a program that requires your ultimate commitment to learning both in and out of the classroom.  You will be asked to sign a learning agreement on day one of the course, which commits you to full participation towards your learning.

£1030 plus VAT (£1236 Total cost)

(These costs include exams and all associated costs)




Course Content

The NEBOSH National General Certificate covers the main legal requirements for health and safety in the UK, identification and control of workplace hazards, and the practical application of this knowledge. The syllabus is mapped to the National Occupational Standards for Health and Safety owned by ENTO. No previous health and safety knowledge is required but delegates should note the assessment includes a requirement to write a short report.

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

  • Management of Health and Safety (NGC1)
  • Controlling workplace hazards (GC2)
  • Health and safety practical application (GC3)

Unit NGC1 Management of Health & Safety  

  • Foundations in health & safety
  • Policy
  • Organising for health & safety
  • Promoting a positive health & safety culture
  • Risk assessment
  • Principles of control
  • Monitoring review and audit
  • Incident and accident investigation and reporting

Unit GC2 Controlling Workplace Hazards 

  • Movement of people and vehicles – hazards and control
  • Manual and mechanical handling – hazards and control
  • Working equipment hazards and control
  • Electrical hazards and control
  • Fire hazards and control
  • Chemical and biological health – hazards and control
  • Physical and psychological health – hazards and control
  • Construction activities – hazards and control

Unit GC3 Health and Safety Practical Application

Managers, supervisors and staff from all types of organisations who need a broad understanding of health and safety issues. The certificate helps them manage risks effectively. Many people take the NEBOSH National General Certificate as a first step in a career in health and safety. It provides a valuable overview, and is a sound basis for further professional study.

The course is assessed by two unit written exams which are held at the end of the course, in addition each delegate is required to submit a hand written practical assessment which is introduced and issued during the course.

Successful delegates are awarded the NEBOSH General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety. Certificates are issued by the examining body NEBOSH approximately 16 weeks after the last day of the course, however students are informed of their results approximately 11 weeks after the exam dates.

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).

We will be offering our NEBOSH General Certificate course as two separate one week blocks of instruction along with a full mock exam and two revision days and then the actual exam making our model a 14-Day process. This may be slightly longer than other training providers, but has been developed to be able to maximize your chances of a first time pass.

Typical fees for open courses are £1030 plus VAT per person at our training rooms in Rainham. However, this can vary for in-house courses.

We run open courses regularly in our Training Centre in Rainham, Kent or we are happy to travel to your location if suitable facilities are available.

It pays to be selective when booking training courses because not all training providers are what they appear to be. When booking a NEBOSH General Course you need to feel assured that your training provider is fully accredited to provide that training and is not then going to sub-contract the work. Lighthouse Safety Training are fully accredited by NEBOSH to provide the NEBOSH General course and proof of that accreditation can be seen on our accreditation page.

I just wanted to say a big thanks for the training you have given during the NEBOSH general, I have learnt more than I ever thought I was going to, your interactive and energetic teaching style has made a course that if I’m honest I wasn’t too keen on doing, into an enjoyable experience. All the additional training aids you have created were a massive help and show you have a real passion for what you do. I have already been singing lighthouse’s praises to my company and I can only hope that it leads to you guys being used regularly by Innogy.
In all honesty, pass or fail you have helped me be better at keeping my guys safe. That, in my mind makes the course a massive success for me, irrelevant of result.

Lighthouse safety Training is a very professional, very focused and knowledgeable training provider. Our tutor, Harry Collins, gave 110% effort into making the course as enjoyable as possible and giving us the best possible chance to achieve the course. He sent us Podcasts, set us homework every night, sent us slides from the previous day to study all in his free time. I can’t praise him and his organisation enough.

I would just like to say a big thank you to all at Lighthouse Safety Training for the helping me achieve an excellent merit on the recent NEBOSH general health and safety certificate. In fact i was only 3 marks away from a distinction so if you could let Ron know what an excellent job he did i would really appreciate that. His tutoring style was really helpful and his guidance on how to complete the practical exam invaluable. I hope the other students on the course also achieved similar results. So thank you all again and i will be recommending you when ever the opportunity arises. I am now working as Regional Safety Adviser within the motor industry.
