The Future of NEBOSH: Why Video eLearning is Revolutionising the NEBOSH Training Industry

The NEBOSH National General Certificate – Video eLearning or Classroom?

The NEBOSH National General Certificate is the UK’s most popular and respected level 3 health and safety qualification. It is often a requirement for those working in health and safety roles and is the most common qualification for those entering into the health and safety profession.

If you’re considering studying for the NEBOSH National General Certificate, you may be wondering which method of study is best for you. While traditional classroom courses have long been the go-to option for many learners, Compassa released the world’s first NEBOSH National General Certificate video eLearning courses in November 2022. This follows on from our release of our video eLearning course for the NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation Award in October 2021. Our goal was to provide an online experience which was more fun, more engaging, and more effective than a classroom course. Since its launch it has been proving popular with learners. In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of studying for the NEBOSH National General Certificate via video eLearning and why it can lead to better results than a traditional classroom course.

The Convenience of studying the NEBOSH National General Certificate via Video eLearning

One of the major advantages of Compassa’s video eLearning is the convenience it offers. With a NEBOSH video eLearning course, you can access the course material at your own pace and from any location with an internet connection. It is completely studied online. This is particularly useful for individuals who have busy schedules or who are located in remote areas.

“I was hesitant to try video eLearning at first, but it ended up being the best decision I could have made. As a busy mum, I didn’t have the time to attend a traditional classroom course, but with this online video course for NEBOSH, I was able to fit my studies in around my schedule. It was so convenient and I was able to complete the course at my own pace.” – Sarah, NEBOSH National General Certificate learner

The Cost-Effectiveness of NEBOSH Video eLearning

Another benefit of our video eLearning is the cost-effectiveness of the format. An online NEBOSH National General Certificate course is more affordable than a traditional classroom NEBOSH course because it does not require travel expenses or time off work.

For those who live a long distance from the training location, the cost of travel and hotel accommodation can be a significant expense. A classroom course is usually two weeks long. In addition, taking time off work to attend a classroom course can be costly in terms of lost wages.

“I was blown away by how much money I saved by choosing a video eLearning course over a classroom course. I didn’t have to worry about travel expenses or taking time off work, and the course was still just as comprehensive and effective. I probably saved over £2,000 because I didn’t have to pay for hotels and food. It was a no-brainer for me.” – David, NEBOSH National General Certificate learner

The Flexibility of NEBOSH Video eLearning

NEBOSH video eLearning courses also offer learners greater flexibility. With our NEBOSH video eLearning courses, you have the ability to pause and rewatch certain sections. If you want to revisit a topic, you can do so at the click of a button and listen and watch the tutorial video again. For those who can keep up, the video tutorials can be played at double speed. If you’re the kind of person who likes subtitles, the course is fully sub-titled in English.

“I struggle with concentration and cannot sit through a long classroom course and take it all in. With this video eLearning course  I was able to pause it whenever my attention started to wander. I could dip in and out as I liked. After failing to keep up the classroom course, Compassa’s online NEBOSH course was a game changer for me.” – Emily, NEBOSH National General Certificate learner

The Engaging Nature of Compassa’s NEBOSH Video eLearning

Compassa’s NEBOSH and IOSH video eLearning courses use interactive elements, such as quizzes and simulations, to keep learners engaged and facilitate a deeper understanding of the material. This can be more engaging and enjoyable for learners compared to traditional classroom courses, which may rely more heavily on lectures and PowerPoint presentations. This is much more than the passive experience of watching a YouTube video. With interactive video technology, learners are actively involved in the NEBOSH video tutorials and must participate in order to progress.

“I was pleasantly surprised by how interactive and engaging the course was. I never felt like I was just sitting and listening to a lecture, and I found that the interactive elements really helped me retain the material. It really was like one-to-one tuition with the most amazing tutor. I had a lot of fun taking the course and it made the learning process so much more enjoyable.” – Brian, NEBOSH National General Certificate learner
