NEBOSH Diploma: Blended learning the best of both worlds

Nearly everybody in the health and safety industry sees the NEBOSH Diploma as the “gold standard” in training for safety and health professionals.

There is no denying the diploma is a demanding course, requiring time and commitment to achieve, but it also brings its rewards with NEBOSH’s own research proving there is a significant salary premium for Diploma holders.

RRC provide the NEBOSH National Diploma in the traditional format of seven weeks in the classroom but health and safety people are busy and seven weeks out of work is just not feasible for many. 

The online course, whilst it suits many, does not provide the discipline and face to face interaction many are looking for in their training.

RRC’s solution to these issues is a blended learning programme which combines three weeks study with online learning. 

This is a carefully worked out structured programme with directed online study of the topics best studied online with the classroom time used to deliver those topics best suited to a classroom environment. It does require some self-discipline to complete the online study required before and after the workshops as the whole Diploma cannot be taught in just three weeks but you can start each unit well before the workshop dates so you would have only four to five hours online study per week.

The programme is available in London and Birmingham and is designed to be studied over an 18 month period, so only one week out of work every six months.

You have access to tutors throughout your studies through RRC’s online learning platform along with forums to keep in touch and share knowledge and experiences with your classmates.

Gary Fallaize said: “This is a really effective way to achieve your NEBOSH Diploma and balance those work-life pressures. The programme has been running for a few years and is delivering pass rates equivalent to the full classroom course.”
