Firstly, you need to gain a Level 6 Diploma in Occupational Safety and Health (or an NVQ equivalent). That could be our own Level 6 Diploma or the NEBOSH Diploma. Both of these meet the academic requirements for membership of IOSH at graduate level (Grad IOSH). From there, you conduct a period of initial professional development (IPD) before applying for chartered status.
We offer a very popular Health and Safety for Directors and Senior Managers course. This course is available as a highly interactive e-learning course or through our face-to-face option at your premises or at a range of venues around the country.
