Note : The Nebosh National Diploma is a single level award that builds upon existing health and safety knowledge and experience. It is unlikely to be suitable for those who are starting in this field. It is recommended that delegates complete the Nebosh general certificate first or an equivalent level 3 qualification. Please contact WATA for more details.
To enrol on the Nebosh National Diploma, students should possess an accredited qualification that meets the domain knowledge of the Level 3 standard ‘Health and Safety in the Workplace’. Please contact WATA for more details.

Full Course description
The WATA route to Diploma success
The NEBOSH National Diploma is the most popular qualification of its kind; and to date over 10,000 candidates have achieved the award.
The Diploma has been designed with Safety Practitioners in mind; it is ideal for those who want to gain professional qualifications in this area. Once the course has been completed it will provide students with a full knowledge of occupational health that can be used across industry, commerce and the public sector. As well as this, combined with understanding and the right application; the Diploma underpins the competent performance of an Occupation Health and Safety Practitioner.
The WATA approach to teaching at our training centre in Hartford, Cambridgeshire is proven to deliver success for our Diploma delegates. At WATA we provide an environment designed for learning; combine this with lectures, discussion, tutorial, comprehensive course material and delegate personal support; and finally we bring all this to a tight focus on WATA Diploma Revision days; six are included in the course fee.
The Professional Rewards
The NEBOSH National Diploma is a professional qualification that meets the academic demands for Chartered Membership (CMIOSH) of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH); the recognised professional body in the field. The route to membership is as follows:
• The GradIOSH designatory letters can be used on application to IOSH after gaining the Diploma
• A CMIOSH chartered status is gained after completion of a minimum of 2 years Initial Professional
Development (IPD) during which graduates will develop a skills based portfolio in OSH practice; this period concludes with a professional peer review interview.
Holders of the NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety may use the letters ‘DipNEBOSH’ after their name; as well as this they are invited to the NEBOSH Graduation Ceremony in the year after the completion of their award. In addition to Diploma awards; Best Candidate Awards are presented at the ceremony and in recent years WATA delegates have received 7 NEBOSH best candidate awards.
After successful completion of the course delegates will:
• Be able to provide detailed advice for health & safety issues in line with current legislation & HSE guidance
• Be able to assist their organisation in the setting up and maintenance of health & safety Management systems and control measures
• Have a broad range of detailed knowledge and its application of key health & safety issues
Diploma Full Programme
The Diploma is approximately the same study level as a third year degree, level 6. While there are no formal entry requirements to the Diploma; students will find it helpful to have completed the National General Certificate first or have shown the ability to study at this level.
The syllabus has four core units; these are:
Unit A: ‘Managing health and safety’; which covers risk assessment, law and behaviour.
Unit B: ‘Hazardous agents in the workplace’; this unit covers health and physiology.
Unit C: ‘Workplace and work equipment safety’; which covers safety and equipment.
Unit D: ‘Application of Health & Safety Theory & Practice’; which is a workplace assignment.
The WATA delivery of the Diploma
The course is designed to be completed in seven weeks; as well as to allow study that can fit around the candidate’s work commitments. Unit A, Managing Health & Safety, is covered in three separate weeks; while the two further Units, B (Hazardous Agents) and C (Workplace & Work Equipment), are each completed in two separate weeks. WATA allocates two revision days per unit; a total of six days of vital exam study.
Unit exams of three hours are held each year in January and July for units A to C. Students will have to complete and pass each unit to gain the NEBOSH National Diploma. Unit D is a single workplace based written assignment. The Unit D report is prepared in the delegates’ own time; but with tutorial set up and ongoing support from WATA tutors. To help with Unit D, WATA provides a one day workshop course followed by four further tutor meetings; all of which are included in the cost of the course.
NEBOSH now requires all delegates to provide photo ID (eg. passport, driving licence, National ID Card) in order to sit the exam. Delegates who do not produce photo ID will not be allowed to sit the exam.
Delegates attending NEBOSH training should familiarise themselves with the NEBOSH General Student Terms and Conditions; a copy of which can be found in the Student Section of the NEBOSH website: www.nebosh.org.uk
The fees include all tuition, course texts, comprehensive course notes, revision and exam days, NEBOSH registration, exam fees and tutor support.
NB: Reasonable adjustments can be asked for from NEBOSH where candidates can show permanent, long term or temporary disability or learning difficulty. Please contact our Health & Safety Admin Team to discuss your needs for the exam and/or training in confidence before the start of the course.
