10 Day Course - Learners are required to be committed to their coursework and it is recommended that private study is completed to achieve the required standards. NEBOSH recommend that learners undertake 40 hours of self-study in addition to the taught hours of this course.
This qualification is assessed with an Open Book Exam (OBE) Unit NC1. This OBE covers content based on all 13 elements and provides a workplace-based scenario to refer to as you work through your exam questions.
During the OBE, learners are able to use their own materials such as course notes, study books, the HSE website, and other research to help them in answering the questions.
The OBE is conducted over a period of 48 hours. It is intended that you will use your time during this period to research, plan and fully answer your questions, whilst also providing the flexibility to take breaks.
