Why You Should Obtain Your NEBOSH General Certificate Online

Why You Should Obtain Your NEBOSH General Certificate Online
12/10/2017

The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) offers workplace health, safety and environmental management qualifications that are recognised by the relevant professional membership bodies across the globe. One of its notable offerings, the NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety, is the UK’s most widely held health and safety qualification.

With this certificate, anyone in a management or supervisory role across all kind or organisations gains extensive knowledge of key health and safety issues. The qualification covers the primary legal requirements for health and safety in workplaces in the UK. This also teaches the proper identification and control of hazards within the workplace, as well as the correct application of the obtained knowledge.

The NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety can be obtained from over 400 training providers across the UK. Generally, managers are expected to participate in a minimum of 80 taught hours; they will also need to study privately and accomplish the necessary background reading, which can take approximately 49 hours. They have the option to take day or evening courses over a number of weeks.

Alternatively, managers can choose to secure their NEBOSH General Certificate online. Why?

Here are four important benefits of e-learning that should be considered:

You can create the learning environment that suits your particular needs. Not everyone performs well in a traditional classroom environment due to a number of factors. You may find, for example, that sitting inside a room with several other people, listening to a single lecturer upfront, can be quite boring. Perhaps you have difficulty absorbing information from verbal instruction. The activity and noise of your classmates may prove to be a distraction. All of these can prevent you from effectively studying the training materials.

With an online course, you can choose to study wherever you find it most convenient and conducive for learning (at home, in the office, in transit, etc.).

You only need a computer with broadband internet connection to get started. Managers can begin their online NEBOSH training immediately because all it takes is a desktop or laptop computer (which virtually everyone already possesses) and a place to connect to steady internet. From there, your health and safety education can commence.

You can follow your own schedule and pace for studying, not anyone else’s. Attending classes in a specific location means that you will also need to follow a rigid schedule for lectures. This won’t work for you if the classes overlap with your work schedule and other responsibilities.

When you take an e-learning NEBOSH course, you can fit your studies into your free time and go through the materials as quickly or as slowly as you need to, to achieve the level of learning that you can excel the most at.

You can avoid unnecessary and excessive costs. Lastly, going to classes in a specific training location means that you have to spend time and money commuting or driving to and from this location several times a week, for many weeks. Being out means that you will need to spend for gas and the occasional (or frequent) stops at stores or restaurants. You might also find yourself meeting with friends socially while you’re out. These can be a problem if you’re aiming to save your resources. Studying online can help you cut back on expenses by taking your lessons through your computer.
