NEBOSH International Diploma in Occupational Health & Safety

Fourteen Day Supported Distance Learning Course Presented by Antaris Consulting Background The NEBOSH International Diploma in Occupational Health & Safety is a structured programme that provides the core knowledge required by today's health and safety practitioner. All occupational health and safety practitioners need to have a common core of knowledge in order to practise effectively. This common core of knowledge must be transferable between the different occupational sectors in which they may work, ranging across all parts of industry, commerce and the public sector. The NEBOSH International Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety provides the knowledge and understanding that underpins competent performance as an occupational health and safety practitioner. The NEBOSH International Diploma has been designed to be at the same level as the NEBOSH National Diploma which is rated at level 10 on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). The Irish awarding bodies and qualifications authorities and the UK awarding and qualifications regulatory bodies undertook an exercise to facilitate the comparison of qualifications in the qualifications framework in the UK and Ireland. The document, Qualifications can cross boundaries - a rough guide to comparing qualifications in the UK and Ireland was published, and compares SCQF Level 10 to Level 8 on the Irish National Framework of Qualifications. In addition there is a recently launched European-wide website:, which supports this comparison of different national education. Over the past years, the pass rate for SQT Diploma students has consistently outperformed the NEBOSH average pass rate for all centres. The International Diploma course syllabus covers International legal frameworks and codes of practice but our course also covers Irish legislation. Other centres run the National Diploma which is based on UK legislation. Professional Body Memberships Pr On successful completion of the qualification: · The Diploma holder may apply for Graduate membership (Grad IOSH) of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), the major UK professional body in the field ( This is the first step to becoming a Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner as a Chartered Member of IOSH (CMIOSH). · This qualification is also accepted by the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management ( as meeting the academic requirements for full membership (MIIRSM). Holders of the NEBOSH International Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety may use

the designatory letters "IDipNEBOSH" after their name. Who Should Attend The NEBOSH International Diploma is designed for health and safety professionals who require a high degree of managerial and technical competence to advise on effective management of risk across the range of employment sectors. Entry Requirements There are no barriers to entry to the NEBOSH International Diploma programme. However, the syllabus assumes the broad basic knowledge of health and safety that is provided by a qualification in Occupational Safety and Health, in particular the NEBOSH International General Certificate. Given the demands of diploma study, the time commitment required and the complementary nature of the NEBOSH International Certificate and International Diploma, the achievement of the NEBOSH International General Certificate or direct equivalent prior to undertaking the Diploma course is highly recommended. Delegates will be asked to complete a pre-course application form to demonstrate prior learning and experience.
