Units IGC1 and GC2 of the NEBOSH International General Certificate are each assessed by two-hour written examinations held in March, June, September and December each year.  Exams can be sat at one of RRC’s UK Exam centres in London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester or Newcastle or in one of our network of 200+ exam centres throughout the world.
