What Does the Course Involve?
The NEBOSH International General Certificate (IGC) is designed to give individuals a good working knowledge of principles relating to health and safety, identification and control of workplace hazards and how to apply this knowledge in the workplace. The IGC certification is based on international standards such as the International Labour Organisation (ILO), and local laws and cultural practices are taken into account where necessary.
How Does the Exam Work?
The IGC1 and GC2 components of the exam are assessed with two two-hour written exams involving ten short-answer questions and one long-answer question per exam. You have the flexibility to sit the exam at a time and location of your choosing. After that, you complete the GC3 component of the assessment which involves a two-hour practical assessment in your workplace, usually within 14 days of the written test.
