Entry Requirements

Health and Safety Knowledge

NEBOSH define this qualification as a “specialist sector-specific supplement to the NEBOSH International General Certificate”. This means that it doesn’t provide knowledge and understanding of general health and safety. It is therefore highly recommended that students hold the NEBOSH International General Certificate or equivalent before studying the NEBOSH Oil and Gas Certificate. If you do not have this knowledge, RRC do provide reference materials to cover this but you should allow for a further 50 hours of study.

Experience of the Oil and Gas Industry

Over recent exams, the NEBOSH examiners have assumed students will have a wider understanding of the oil and gas industry, gained from working in the industry itself. This can provide difficulties for students without this experience as examination questions often require the application of the knowledge delivered in the course to industry-specific scenarios.

Whilst we cannot replace the practical knowledge gained through experience in the industry, we have developed a pre-reader to assist those without such direct experience. This outlines how oil and gas are extracted and processed, using easily understood diagrams to explain complicated topics such as drilling, refining and storage. You should allow a further 25 Hours study if you need to study the pre-reader.


The NEBOSH Oil and Gas Certificate is assessed by one two-hour written exam.

Exams take place in March, June, September and December. We have exam centres in over 80 countries worldwide and we make all the arrangements for you.

All of our courses contain plenty of exam practice to ensure you are fully prepared for the exam. Many of our trainers are also NEBOSH examiners, so they're well placed to provide advice and guidance throughout your course.
