Reading the latest NEBOSH newsletter, it is interesting to note that the International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety has overtaken the National General Certificate when it comes to annual registrations.
According to NEBOSH between April 2011 and 2012, there were 40,775 registrations to sit units of the NEBOSH International General Certificate compared to 37,426 for the National General Certificate.
The International Certificate course syllabus covers International legal frameworks and codes of practice.
The National Certificate is based on UK legislation.
Both courses are offered in Ireland. It is advisable for prospective attendees to consider carefully which course – International Certificate or a National suits them best.
