Assessment and Certification


																		This updated, modern qualification focus on key skills that means learners can instantly apply the knowledge gained in order to add value to their organisation. Assessment is a 2 – step process.
A question paper (IG1) – to assess what the learner knows and, A practical risk assessment (IG2) – to assess what the learner can do

IG1
The IG syllabus contains 11 (taught) units. Only units 1-4 (IG1) are subject to a written examination
A minimum of 45 marks are required for a pass standard.

IG2
The aim of this assessment (IG2) is for learners to practically apply the knowledge and understanding that they have gained from their studies.   To do this, learners will need to complete a risk assessment of their own workplace.  Before starting the assessment, learners must have completed their studies of the whole of the NG syllabus (elements 1 to 11).   The practical must normally be taken within 10 working days of the written examination. There is no time limit for actually carrying out the practical (although NEBOSH recommends 3 hours.) The practical is internally assessed by the accredited course provider and moderated by NEBOSH.


Certification
IG1: A minimum of 45 marks, IG2: A minimum of “Pass” (the unit is a simple “pass” or “refer”.)
Candidates are required to obtain a “Pass” in each unit in order to be awarded the qualification parchment from NEBOSH.
