Congratulations to all on the excellent results in the January exams for the NEBOSH International Diploma in Occupational Health & Safety.
This is a supported distance learning course. Generally two courses commence each year in September and January. Each student takes three examinations, (Units A, B and C), and then completes an assignment (Unit D). Exams are held twice per year (January and July), at centres throughout the world. Successful completion of all four Units leads to being awarded a NEBOSH Diploma. The award is at Level 8 on the National Framework of Qualifications.
The NEBOSH Diploma exams are challenging exams. The overall NEBOSH pass rates for January for all exam centres were as follows:
Unit A 39%
Unit B 51%
Unit C 45%
I’m delighted that the pass rates for SQT candidates for each Unit exceeded the NEBOSH average:
Unit A 53%
Unit B 71%
Unit C 54%
In fact, the latest cohort of students who commenced in September 2009 and sat the Unit A exam in January, achieved an overall pass rate of 64%. When one compares this to the NEBOSH average pass rate of 39%, one sees what a good result they achieved.
Well done to everyone, all the hard work paid off. Well done also to the tutor for this course, Finbarr Stapleton.
