The NDEM2 is a formal assignment set by Nebosh where candidates have to demonstrate their knowledge and practical application of some of the important subjects from Units ED1 and NDEM2. The assignment requires the completion of a 10,000+ word vocational based report which must show that the candidate has both the knowledge and skills to apply the issues taught in a workplace of their choice.
This assignment is marked by Nebosh markers with four submission dates a year in February, May, August and November for delegates to work towards.
This is one of the few professional courses available in environmental management, it is aimed primarily at health safety practitioners, who either have responsibility for environmental management or those whose role interlinks with that of the environmental manager. However it is open to all those who have responsibility for general or a specific aspect of the environment.
Many employers give responsibility for environmental management to the organisation’s safety advisor or manager. Holding the Nebosh diploma will provide the holder with the confidence to undertake their role, as well as being an indicator of the competence inside and external to the organisation.
Yes, we can accept a small number of external delegates, however this will be dependent on availability of spaces, please contact us on 01733 865695 to confirm the date and availability. Please note, you must be enrolled with a Nebosh training centre and you will need to contact them regarding sitting your exam with us.
