An 11-Day course, delivered expertly over 11 weeks to maximise your chances of NEBOSH exam success

Most NEBOSH course providers expect you to study in 9 days, and absorb large amounts of information in a very short time.

Our NEBOSH General Certificate course is different.

We deliver it over 11 weeks, one day a week (not including half-terms and school holidays). This includes additional time for revision, games, interactive exercises, mock exam questions, and exam preparation.

Will Taylor


Will Taylor has been described as “as much motivational speaker as a health and safety trainer”. His aim is to inspire change by challenging people and managers to set a higher standard for themselves, their teams, and their organisations. He brings a message of personal responsibility and extreme ownership, and combines it with the topic of health and safety. This leaves the trainees more inclined to behave more safely and take more personal responsibility for the safety of themselves and those around them.

How is the NEBOSH National General Certificate Qualification Assessed?

NG1: Open Book Exam

The new NEBOSH Open Book Exam is downloaded from the NEBOSH portal. You have 24 hours to complete the exam and upload your answers to the NEBOSH portal. You are allowed to consult your course materials, study book, and the internet as much as you like.

The exam is based on a realistic workplace scenario. You then have a series of questions or “tasks” to carry out. You need to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of how health and safety works in practice. The main benefit of this new Open Book approach is there is no longer any need to memorise vast amounts of information or lists of bulletpoints to pass the exam. However, do not underestimate the difficulty of the exam. It is still difficult to pass.

To pass you need to score at least 45 marks out of 100.

NG2: Practical Application

The practical application is submitted after the exam. Essentially it is a risk assessment based on a real workplace and a report to management. It has 4 parts:

Part 1: Description of the Organisation and Methodology
Part 2: Risk Assessment
Part 3: Select 3 Actions and write a report to management
Part 4: Review Date, Communicate, and Follow-Up

The practical application is probably the hardest aspect of the course due to the lack of a pass mark. It is simply a Pass or a Refer. If just one part of the NG2 practical fails to meet the pass criteria, the whole practical fails. This means it is very important that you have a course provider and tutor who will thoroughly explain to you what is required and what mistakes to avoid. This will maximise your chances of passing on your first attempt.

“Having completed a lot of health and safety eLearning courses over the years I found this to be the most informative but entertaining at the same time. My interest was held throughout the IOSH Managing Safely course. By being involved, constantly in actually doing something, I learnt more quickly and absorbed the content at all times.”

Alison Davis Post-Room Assistant, Wilkin Chapman Solicitors

Our Accreditations

“My success is absolutely down to your excellent standard of instruction, and the way that you taught us. You taught us Health and Safety very thoroughly and you ensured that we understood it – you did not treat it as a cramming exercise, just to pass an exam. Consequently: even a couple of months later, I can still clearly visualise many of the examples and cases that you quoted, in order to bring a rather dry subject to life. I am delighted; my wife is amazed.”

Bryan Price Plant Manager, British Steel

“WOW. Just enrol, you certainly will not be disappointed.
Yes, you will have to commit to study time, in return you will receive inspirational, intuitive tutoring and support. My group (The Covid Class of 2020), attained a 92% pass rate, regardless of the ongoing pandemic.
Will is certainly a tutor like no other, who works incredibly hard to deliver a difficult subject, in an unprecendented way.”

Mel Shepperson Team Leader, Howden's Joinery

“Took my NEBOSH training with Will Taylor from Compassa from January 2020. What a fantastic experience. Will made what is a very gruelling subject, fun, interesting and extremely engaging. His enthusiasm and energy for teaching is second to none and is infectious, he inspires like no other tutor I have ever experienced. I honestly do not think I would be sat here today, writing this review, with a NEBOSH General Certificate without Wills excellent tuition. I cannot recommend him enough!”

Jason Thurlby H&S Officer, Hurst Doors
