NEBOSH National General Certificate

The cost of this course is £1030 plus VAT (£1236 Total cost)
(These costs  include exams and all associated costs.)

The NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety training course outlines general health and safety responsibilities. It provides a valuable overview, and is a sound basis for further professional study and is a Level 3 qualification.

With our pass rate still in the high 90% margins, if you or someone you know is thinking of attending the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) General Certificate course, then Lighthouse is the sensible choice.

Our lead tutor is a NEBOSH Examiner of some years experience, he knows how this course should be taught. They spend time coaching candidates, not only the approach to take with regards to exam success, but on how to apply what is being taught to real work time scenarios, so people leave the course with the confidence on how to use the information in the real world.

We run our courses slightly longer than most providers, as doing so maximises the opportunity of a first time pass. Coupled with what we believe are realistic charges, this really is the informed choice. The course includes two separate weeks’ classroom tuition, followed by a full mock exam and two days revision based on the exam’s findings. The final course day is then the actual exam day.

Learning agreement

You are about to embark on a challenging programme of study, one which should enhance your knowledge and understanding of health and safety management as well as your professional status. Be under no misunderstanding, this is an intense learning program, a program that requires your ultimate commitment to learning both in and out of the classroom.  You will be asked to sign a learning agreement on day one of the course, which commits you to full participation towards your learning.

Who Should Attend

Managers, supervisors and staff from all types of organisations who need a broad understanding of health and safety issues. The certificate helps them manage risks effectively. Many people take the NEBOSH National General Certificate as a first step in a career in health and safety. It provides a valuable overview, and is a sound basis for further professional study.

Course Content

The NEBOSH National General Certificate covers the main legal requirements for health and safety in the UK, identification and control of workplace hazards, and the practical application of this knowledge. The syllabus is mapped to the National Occupational Standards for Health and Safety owned by ENTO. No previous health and safety knowledge is required but delegates should note the assessment includes a requirement to write a short report.

The qualification is divided into three units, each of which is assessed separately:

  • Management of Health and Safety (NGC1)
  • Controlling workplace hazards (GC2)
  • Health and safety practical application (GC3)

Unit NGC1 Management of Health & Safety  

  • Foundations in health & safety
  • Policy
  • Organising for health & safety
  • Promoting a positive health & safety culture
  • Risk assessment
  • Principles of control
  • Monitoring review and audit
  • Incident and accident investigation and reporting

Unit GC2 Controlling Workplace Hazards 

  • Movement of people and vehicles – hazards and control
  • Manual and mechanical handling – hazards and control
  • Working equipment hazards and control
  • Electrical hazards and control
  • Fire hazards and control
  • Chemical and biological health – hazards and control
  • Physical and psychological health – hazards and control
  • Construction activities – hazards and control

Unit GC3 Health and Safety Practical Application

Assessment & Award

The course is assessed by two unit written exams which are held at the end of the course, in addition each delegate is required to submit a hand written practical assessment which is introduced and issued during the course. Failure to submit the practical assessment within agreed time frames will result in a course fail result.

Successful delegates are awarded the NEBOSH General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety. Certificates are issued by the examining body NEBOSH approximately 16 weeks after the last day of the course, however students are informed of their results approximately 11 weeks after the exam dates.

The NEBOSH National General Certificate meets the academic requirements for Technician membership (TechIOSH) of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and Associate membership (AIIRSM) of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).


We will be offering our NEBOSH General Certificate course as two separate one week blocks of instruction along with a full mock exam and two revision days and then the actual exam making our model a 14-Day process. This may be slightly longer than other training providers, but has been developed to be able to maximize your chances of a first time pass.

The dates for forthcoming courses are listed below and on our future courses page.


Typical fees for open courses are £1030 + VAT, per person; however this can vary for in-house courses (dependant on location and numbers).

As part of the fees each delegate will receive full colour course books to match each of the three units of instruction, exam revision notes and exam success notes.

Refreshments and a light buffet lunch is provided  free of charge.


We run open courses regularly in our Training Centre in Rainham, Kent or we are happy to travel to your location if suitable facilities are available.


Our head tutor is a NEBOSH Examiner and has many years experience of tutoring and mentoring candidates through this process.

Our course model has been adapted to maximise the chances of anyone that is wishing to take this qualification. We run tuition over two separate weeks which is followed by a full mock exam process, and two further revision days, which aims to focus on weak areas that are highlighted in the mock exams. We strongly believe that this fully prepares any candidate for the exam which them follows a week later.

Our course material is printed in full colour under licence from RRC, it follows the teaching material, and has self assessment questions throughout.

A Polite Notice

It pays to be selective when booking training courses because not all training providers are what they appear to be. When booking a NEBOSH General Course you need to feel assured that your training provider is fully accredited to provide that training and is not then going to sub-contract the work. Lighthouse Safety Training are fully accredited by NEBOSH to provide the NEBOSH General course and proof of that accreditation can be seen on our accreditation page.

Kerry, October 2018 (NEBOSH NGC1) 

Really enjoyed my time learning here with Harry.  From the first day you could see his passion and belief in what he does and this comes across throughout the week.  I would definitely recommend Lighthouse to anyone in the future wanting to do this course.

Jason, January 2018 (NEBOSH NGC1) 

Harry has made the course interactive and enjoyable even though the course is intense and a lot to take in.  All the extra material provided and the online toolkit will help and wasn’t expected :).  I’m sure this will be used a lot in between the courses to help revision.  Thank you.  Harry was great at answering ‘all’ my questions.
Abby, January 2018 (NEBOSH NGC1) 

Andy has been a fantastic, knowledge and interesting trainer.  I have found some of the course tough (due to me not Andy) but Andy has really made me confident I can achieve something.  I have learnt so much. I would have no trouble in and will be recommending Lighthouse.
Faye, January 2018 (NEBOSH NGC1)

A very good week! All staff are friendly and helpful.  The slides and video prepared by Harry are fantastic and well above anything I have received from similar scenarios.  Good facilities, good food.   A positive culture throughout.
Toby, January 2018 (NEBOSH NGC1)

Covered a tremendous amount of scope. Andy’s training techniques were excellent, putting real life events against the literature.  The slides are very helpful.
Garry, January 2018 (NEBOSH NGC1)

Enjoyed the course. Very intense but a good teaching style of free flow conversation. Slides and online tools.  Good to know that we have the support out of the classroom if required.  Really enjoyed and will be great to implement new skills and knowledge gained.

Harry was/is very supportive, don’t think I would have got this far without Harry’s support.  Huge thanks.
Manda, November 2017 (NEBOSH General) 

I found the course really enjoyable which was made easier by the first class tutoring.  The audio and slides made it much more easier to revise and remember.
Thomas, November 2017 (NEBOSH General) 

Tutor paced course just right for audience. Lots of amusement despite serious topic.  Will recommend Lighthouse for our regional safety needs and will be in touch.

Thanks to all at lighthouse for the continual support you gave me and my fellow delegates during our NEBOSH course, today is a very very happy day. Harry Collins, you are the man, thank you.
Darren, November 2017 (NEBOSH)

I was very impressed by the new way of post teaching using Ispring, folders/presentations/videos and the use of social media eg.  whatsapp in communicating within the group.  Posting audio content via whatsapp is great and has helped me enormously listening in the car.  Great use of technology.
Tom, October 2017 (NEBOSH) 

I found this course extremely interesting and information that was delivered met all of my business needs.  Harry was a fantastic trainer, his delivery was spot on, his belief in us and always going the extra mile to ensure we understood him, his support out of the course has been so needed.  I believe I can do a much better job now because of how he has delivered the course.
Manda, October 2017 (NEBOSH)

Felt at ease throughout the course, the whole week was completed in a relaxed atmosphere.
Craig, October 2017 (NEBOSH General) 

I just wanted to say a big thanks for the training you have given during the NEBOSH general, I have learnt more than I ever thought I was going to, your interactive and energetic teaching style has made a course that if I’m honest I wasn’t too keen on doing, into an enjoyable experience. All the additional training aids you have created were a massive help and show you have a real passion for what you do. I have already been singing lighthouse’s praises to my company and I can only hope that it leads to you guys being used regularly by Innogy.
In all honesty, pass or fail you have helped me be better at keeping my guys safe. That, in my mind makes the course a massive success for me, irrelevant of result.
Dan, September 2017 (NEBOSH General)

Lighthouse safety Training is a very professional, very focused and knowledgeable training provider. Our tutor, Harry Collins, gave 110% effort into making the course as enjoyable as possible and giving us the best possible chance to achieve the course. He sent us Podcasts, set us homework every night, sent us slides from the previous day to study all in his free time. I can’t praise him and his organisation enough.
Gordon, June 2017 (NEBOSH)

Different learning methods were good i.e. discussion, practise questions, and media coverage.  Revision days really helpful.

I would just like to say a big thank you to all at Lighthouse Safety Training for the helping me achieve an excellent merit on the recent NEBOSH general health and safety certificate. In fact I was only 3 marks away from a distinction so if you could let Ron know what an excellent job he did I would really appreciate that. His tutoring style was really helpful and his guidance on how to complete the practical exam invaluable. I hope the other students on the course also achieved similar results. So thank you all again and I will be recommending you when ever the opportunity arises. I am now working as Regional Safety Adviser within the motor industry.

Kevin, December 2012 (NEBOSH)

Well presented and structured by a knowledgeable instructor. Many Thanks

Simon, December 2012 (NEBOSH)

A well put together course, Ron is obviously very knowledgeable on the subject an d this was shown throughout. Ron is also very good at not only covering the subject well but also very good at not only covering the subject well but also keeping all parties involved even if their knowledge is of different levels.

Rob – September 2012

The course was excellent and the tutor (Ron) gives extra to ensure understanding.

Omotope – September 2012

Ron was a fantastic tutor and would recommend Lighthouse without hesitation.

Rudolf – September 2012

I found the course very interesting, and the way things were explained by Ron made me understand the topics very well. Other than that Lighthouse Safety Training have been very helpful to me, they were accommodating to my personal issues by making sure that my dietary requirements were met. I am pleased and impressed.

Manpreet – September 2012

First class course, many thanks.

Ian – September 2012

Very Well run course. Ron was an excellent tutor

Lee – September 2012

Ron was a true professional, able to answer any question asked demonstrating an unbelievable amount of knowledge.

A true pleasure, thanks

Anthony – September 2012

Curse Content is heavy but the tutor structured it in such a way to meet students varied abilities.
