Nebosh Distance Learning

Here at Cambridge Safety, we appreciate that work and personal circumstances do not always allow those wishing to develop new skills to attend a fully tutored course. As such we have developed a distance learning options to enable directed study towards a range of Nebosh qualifications. Nebosh distance learning can be started at any time, with a variety of examination dates available each year.

Is distance learning right for you?

It is important to remember that these are high-level qualifications which require in-depth analysis of the topics studied along with extensive research of the course materials provided and external information sources. Our NEBOSH courses are supported by extensive course materials, self marked assessments, end of element tutor marked assessments and a resource library on a memory stick along with access to our online resource library, podcasts and video presentations. You will need to be highly motivated and have the ability to plan your study route.

We include full guidance for exams and practical assignments, plus a revision package.  For courses with Open Book Exam assessments, the delegate must register their exam with their course provider who they have studied with.

If you're unsure if distance learning is right for you and believe you would benefit from a more interactive style of learning, take a look at our Nebosh Online Courses. You'll have access to our specially designed E-Learning platform which is home to a range of resources including presentation slides, podcasts and quizzes.
