The NEBOSH International Diploma is a qualification for aspiring health and safety professionals, building directly upon the foundation of knowledge provided by the NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety.
It is designed to provide students with the expertise – wherever in the world they may be working – required to undertake a career as a safety and health practitioner. It also provides a sound basis for progression to postgraduate study.
- The qualification meets the academic requirements for application for Graduate Membership (Grad IOSH) of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH – www.iosh.co.uk). This is the first step to becoming a Chartered Health and Safety Practitioner as a Chartered Member of IOSH (CMIOSH).
- Holders of the International Diploma are able to waive the Board of Certified Safety Professionals’ Associate Safety Professional (ASP) examination so that, if they meet all other requirements, they may sit directly for the Certified Safety Professional (CSP) examination.
- Holders of the NEBOSH International Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety and either the NEBOSH National or International Certificate in Construction Health and Safety meet the headline entrance criteria requirements for Registered Construction Safety Practitioner (RMaPS) and membership of the Association for Project Safety (APS).
The International Diploma is also accepted by the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM) as meeting the academic requirements for full membership (MIIRSM).
