The NEBOSH approved International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety provides an unrivalled opportunity to demonstrate competence in Health and Safety issues relevant to your place of work. This course has been designed to provide an appropriate breadth of underpinning knowledge for non-specialists in occupational health and safety working in an international context, to enable them to discharge more effectively their organisational duties or functions with respect to workplace health and safety. It has been designed for managers, supervisors, employee representatives and others who require a basic knowledge and understanding of occupational health and safety.
The course consists of 3 units:
- Unit IGC1 Management of international health and safety
- Unit GC2 Controlling Workplace Hazards
- Unit CG3 International health and safety practical application
The course consists of 10 days intensive training to give candidates a good grounding in health and safety and prepare candidates for the NEBOSH International General Certificate examinations. Extensive training materials are provided for the course. The taught element of the course is 80 hours but candidates need to further undertake a minimum of 53 hours private study.
Assessment of this course consist of two written papers (IGC1 and GC2) and a practical assessment (GC3). The pass rate for our SQT delegates have always been well in excess of NEBOSH averages. Here is a link to our results
The International Certificate course syllabus covers International legal frameworks and codes of practice but in addition our SQT course also covers Irish legislation. Other centres in Ireland run the National Certificate which is based on UK legislation. We recommend that prospective delegates satisfy themselves as to which legislation is most relevant to their own/their company’s needs. Successful completion of the Certificate will allow you gain direct access to the NEBOSH International Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety. SQT is the only Irish NEBOSH accredited provider to present both NEBOSH Certificate and Diploma courses.
A NEBOSH qualification is one of the most accredited qualifications in Health and Safety internationally. More information on NEBOSH is available at NEBOSH Website
