Local laws and cultural factors are also included when appropriate.

It’s this global best practice approach which helps make sure people all around the world are working to the same high standards.

All Astutis tutors are experienced health and safety professionals and leaders within their field. With vast industry knowledge gained from experience, our tutors are also educationalists who hold teaching qualifications, masters degrees or doctorates. Additionally, as NEBOSH examiners they are ideally placed to guide and coach delegates to ensure success. For those studying online, with our award-winning LMS, delegates are able to further interact outside of the classroom by way of our tutor-led discussion forum and notice boards. Tutors are able to pose questions and guide a conversation to further develop thinking around particular topics. Astutis delegates will be assigned a tutor on enrolment who will be on hand to answer questions on a one-to-one basis via telephone or email.
There are 3 half-day exams required of the NEBOSH National Diploma ­ each covering a unit of the course. In addition to this, candidates must complete an 8,000-word work-based assignment. For more information on NEBOSH International Diploma examinations.
The NEBOSH International Diploma qualification has been accredited as a level 6 qualification by Ofqual. This is equivalent to a university honours degree ­ and is a good base from which to progress to a Masters Degree in Health and Safety.
The length of time taken to complete the NEBOSH International Diploma course varies according to the mode of study. However, the classroom-based course is run over 6 weeks ­ each unit taking 2 weeks of tuition. Candidates have a period of 5 years from enrolment to completing their NEBOSH International Diploma exams.
The NEBOSH International Diploma qualification meets the academic requirements to apply for Graduate Membership (GradIOSH) of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). It is the first step to becoming a Chartered Health and Safety Practitioner as a Chartered Member of IOSH (CMIOSH). The next step is completing a Skills Development Portfolio. Once you have passed all the Units you will also need to maintain your continuing professional development (CPD). You will be asked to attend a Peer Review Interview.
Although it is not required, it is strongly recommended that you take the International Certificate course before the International Diploma to improve your chances of passing.
No. As the NEBOSH National Diploma course is modular, delegates are able to study individual units as they please. However, Astutis would recommend starting with Unit A as delegates will find they are able to build on knowledge gained with each Unit. If you have already partially completed the course and need certain units.
