The NEBOSH National Diploma is the UK’s premier health and safety qualification designed specifically for those who want to forge a career in health and safety. For example, it is ideal for health and safety managers, advisors and consultants. It also provides a basis for progressing to postgraduate study. Many MSc programmes run by universities in the UK accept this diploma as a full or partial entry requirement.

The course builds directly on the knowledge gained in the NEBOSH National General Certificate or the NEBOSH National Construction Certificate.

It meets the academic requirements for graduate membership of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (GradIOSH). In addition, the diploma can enable you to attain full membership of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management.

Also, combined with further experience and professional development, it meets the standards required to achieve Chartered Safety Practitioner (CMIOSH) status. If you prefer to obtain CMIOSH status via a practical, evidence based route, you may wish to consider the NVQ Level 5 Diploma.

Course Structure

The course is split into three separate units with taught content:

  • Unit A – Managing Health and Safety
  • Unit B – Hazardous Agents in the Workplace
  • Unit C – Workplace and Work Equipment Safety

It also features Unit D, which is an assignment that tests practical application of the knowledge gained in the previous units.


Our tutors are the very best in the industry. Our tutorial team includes a variety of eminent, highly qualified Health and Safety professionals who are friendly, efficient and there to help you all the way to achieving your qualification. Full-time dedicated Phoenix support tutors are available every day of the week (many of our competitors use contracted trainers that are not employed by them) and you can contact tutors by telephone, fax, email or skype. This assistance continues until you pass the course. It doesn’t expire after a set time period.

We also have very busy and active online discussion forums where students are able to talk to each other, post questions, attempt activities and interact with tutors.

As a Phoenix NEBOSH Diploma student you now get FREE inductions as part of your course fee. For those in the UK, this is offered via a one day session at our head office in Staffordshire. For those overseas or who can't make the face to face sessions, we are offering quarterly induction webinars as part of our weekly webinar programme.

Ongoing Assessment

To keep track of your progress towards your final exams, you will complete a study planner. The course materials include regular revision questions and activities to help you test your own progress. These activities can be discussed with your tutors at any time.
