The City & Guilds Level 3 NVQ Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety is a standard qualification for people who are new into a health and safety role or managers who would like to formalise their knowledge and understanding of health and safety in the workplace. The qualification is suitable for people who work in all industry sectors and ideal if you who wish to develop your skills and knowledge in the application of health and safety good practice within the workplace. The City & Guilds Level 3 NVQ Certificate is equivalent to the NEBOSH International General Certificate.
The Level 3 NVQ Certificate is a work-based certification that recognises a person's competence using workplace performance assessment, rather than relying on teaching and examinations
The qualification needs the collection of evidence from your day-to-day health and safety work activities. This process does not require you to be away from your workplace for long periods and any time spent with your assessor is spread over the period it takes you to complete the qualification, this is essentially a distance learning approach to gaining a qualification. Candidates who prefer to be analysed by examinations should consider the NEBOSH International General Certificate.
