Why You Should Attend A NEBOSH Diploma Tutorial

Nebosh By Matthew Coombes

What is the NEBOSH Diploma?:

The NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety is split into 4 units:

Units A, B and C are written examinations that are taken in person at any approved NEBOSH examination venue. Unit DNI is a practical application of all of the prior units that is completed after you have finished your exams.

All of the units of the NEBOSH Diploma must be completed within 5 years in order to achieve the full qualification. The units are not intended to be studied simultaneously, and so we recommend that you dedicate your full attention to one unit at a time. The NEBOSH Diploma is a degree level qualification and this is reflected in the complexity of the course material.

Where can I take my NEBOSH Diploma exams?:

At ACT we offer NEBOSH Diploma exams at four venues across the UK: Glasgow, Manchester, Oxford and the West Midlands. Exams typically take place twice a year, on the approved dates set by NEBOSH. For more information on booking an exam, you can contact our administration team via email on central.admin@actassociates.co.uk.

What are Exam Tutorials:

We offer exam tutorial days for the three written examination units and a separate support service for the DNI Assignment. The exam tutorials take place before the exam dates set out by NEBOSH, and are tailored to each delegate and the areas they feel they need the most support in. Delegates are encouraged to discuss with tutors beforehand which areas of the unit that they would like to focus on during the day so that they can make the most of the session. The tutorials are one full day in duration and are typically held at the same 4 venues that we offer the exams in.

Why should I attend a tutorial?

You don’t have to be studying with us to attend a tutorial day, and you don’t have to have attended a classroom course either. The sessions follow the NEBOSH syllabus closely and they are student-led, making them a great way for students to share their areas of concern and have them addressed by a qualified tutor with many years of experience in teaching online health and safety training, such as NEBOSH Diploma courses.

The tutorials also cover good practice for exam technique. This means learning how to properly answer questions, understand command words, manage your time in the exam, and provide an appropriate answer to the question. NEBOSH state that failing to properly apply the basic principles of examination technique can mean the difference between a pass and a referral for many students.
