Health and Safety Diplomas - NVQ and NEBOSH Diploma
At ATC Risk Management, we provide three health and safety qualifications which have 'Diploma' in the title. Both of them are highly respected qualifications, and are intended to be taken by those who are serious about devoting the time needed to complete all requirements.
One is the NVQ Level 5, or, to give it its full title, the NVQ Diploma Level 5 in Occupational Health and Safety Practice. Unlike health and safety courses which require information to be learnt and assessments passed at the end, a health and safety NVQ is obtained by a person collecting and submitting evidence gathered from doing their job. His means that only those who are in a job role where they are able to collect sufficient evidence are able to enrol on a health and safety NVQ programme. For this reason, our NVQ assessors will ensure that you are in a position where you can satisfy the criteria before you are enrolled or part with any money!
The other qualifications we offer are NEBOSH Diplomas; namely the NEBOSH National Diploma and the NEBOSH Environmental Diploma. A NEBOSH Diploma is one of the most well-respected and comprehensive health and safety qualifications available in the world, both in terms of the syllabus size of the Diploma, but also being accredited by NEBOSH. The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) is one of the most recognised health and safety awarding bodies in the world, and only those health and safety training providers who have been pre-accredited by NEBOSH are able to run the courses. The amount of work and number of hours that must be put in, particularly in the National Diploma, mean that only those who wish to become a health and safety practitioner or are serious about putting in the commitment required should contemplate taking a NEBOSH Diploma course. It is highly recommended that the NEBOSH General Certificate should be taken first in order to provide the foundation level of health and safety knowledge a person needs before taking a Diploma course.
Need an Accredited Course?
Along with designing bespoke health and safety training programmes, we also run the accredited NEBOSH, IOSH and ConstructionSkills (CSkills) health and safety courses as open courses at selected venues across the UK, as well as in-house for those companies who have a number of employees requiring the training, as it will be much more cost effective than sending them all onto a scheduled open course.
For more information please call 0115 984 9940 to discuss the options or send us an online contact form. Alternatively, use the "Courses" menu at the top of the page to view the courses and qualifications for the various awarding bodies.
These courses form the basis for our in-house training programmes. They can either be run as they are if the outline is exactly what you want, or can be be modified to suit the individual requirements of your organisation. Two or more can also be combined to tailor a bespoke training session for you.
