Ways to Learn

What is the NEBOSH General Certificate Online/E-learning Course?

The NEBOSH National General Certificate online/e-learning course covers the exact same content as the tried and tested classroom NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety.

As with our standard and fast track NEBOSH National General Certificate course, the e-learning version covers the main legal requirements for safety in the UK, a range of workplace hazards, and methods of control.

*Rated 4.8 out of 5 by learners on Coursecheck, TSW Training has been a trusted and established training provider of choice for 56 years.

Who is this Course For?

This online course is for managers, supervisors, and staff from all types of organisations, who need a broad understanding of health and safety issues.

This e-learning route for this course is suited to those that wish to limit the amount of time that they are away from the workplace. If you are self-motivated and prefer to learn at your own pace then this is the learning method for you.

How is this Course Assessed?

The NEBOSH National General Certificate is assessed in two parts:

  • NG1 – An online open-book examination to assess what you have learned and know about health and safety
  • NG2 – A 3-hour practical risk assessment to assess your application of health and safety knowledge. You will complete a risk assessment in your workplace and develop an action plan that is immediately useful and valuable for your organisation

You will need to pass both parts to achieve your NEBOSH General Certificate. 

NEBOSH has introduced an open book exam for the NEBOSH National General Certificate (NG1). This exam is a replacement for the closed book exams (carried out in an examinations venue) and allows you to sit your NEBOSH exam in your own home or at another suitable location (i.e. workplace, quiet room in a library etc.).

Once you have completed the online course, you will contact us to find out when the next exam date is being held and to register yourself for your chosen date. More information on the open book exam.

How Long Does the Course Last?

NEBOSH recommends that the National General Certificate e-learning course will require a minimum of 113 hours of learning and study time, plus the time required to complete the exam. Depending on the time you have available to learn the online course can take from 3-9 months to complete.

Read our latest course reviews

The Nebosh was a very difficult course to undertake for myself considering I personally had not been involved in this in-depth of course for a long time. The knowledge gained has already changed my views on health and safety in the workforce and empowered me to drive the H&S culture further. The venue as mentioned was very easy to find and the staff there were very friendly. The trainer was very good and kept us all well informed and could answer and elaborate on all questions asked. I cannot speak highly enough of the trainer.
Owen S January 15, 2024
The trainer has been outstanding in two ways. His teaching style is engaging, captive, thought provoking, and very knowledgeable. He guides learners with his recommended method of learning and doing additional study/work required to succeed in learning this topic. I have found this guidance very helpful despite not always being able to follow it exactly due to time constraints with my work and life outside of the course.
Michael W January 15, 2024
Great venue, great people and i would highly recommend anyone thinking of enhancing their knowledge of health and safety.
Christian C January 15, 2024
