When I’ve Completed the NEBOSH General Certificate Can I Study Further?

Once you have completed the NEBOSH General Certificate and Fire Certificate we recommend that you gain some more work experience. If you decide to study further we recommend the NEBOSH Diploma. This qualification is for individuals who wish to pursue a career in occupational health and safety and become a health and safety consultant, practitioner or other.

Please note: studying the NEBOSH Diploma does not automatically qualify you to be a health and safety consultant or practitioner, this requires qualifications and more experience before you are able to take on this type of job role.
