NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety

The NEBOSH International General Certificate (IGC) is the most popular international health and safety qualification and is essential for anyone wanting a successful career in health and safety. Holders of the IGC can apply for technical membership of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (Tech IOSH), the world’s largest health and safety membership organisation. Many students then progress to an International Diploma (Grad IOSH) and from there to chartered status (CMIOSH).

Our IGC course focuses on practical health and safety management that can be applied in your workplace and intensive examination preparation. Our pass rates are consistently above average, which means you have a greater chance of passing first time round.
