NGC1 is the core unit for all of the NEBOSH National Health and Safety Certificates, so to gain a NEBOSH Certificate you need to study NGC1 along with the relevant specialist unit and practical assessment.
If you have been awarded a NEBOSH Certificate in the last 5 years and wish to take another, you will be exempt from NGC1 and can simply 'top up' with the specialist unit and practical assessment to achieve the new award.
Units NGC1 and NGC2 of the NEBOSH Certificate are each assessed by one two-hour written exam. Unit NGC3 is assessed by a two-hour practical assessment carried out in your workplace.
