Unit IGC1: Management of international health and safety

Unit IGC1 is a taught unit, assessed by one two-hour written examination
Each written examination consists of ten ‘short-answer’ questions (8 marks each) and one ‘long-answer’ question (20 marks)
Each examination paper covers the whole IGC1 unit syllabus. All questions are compulsory
Candidate scripts are marked by external examiners appointed by NEBOSH

Each examination paper covers the whole GC2 unit syllabus.
All questions are compulsory

Unit GC3: Health and safety practical application

Unit GC3 is assessed by one practical assessment carried out in the candidate’s own workplace
This is held on a date set by the accredited course provider and must normally be taken within 10 working days of a written examination
The practical examination is internally assessed by the accredited course provider and externally moderated by NEBOSH

Achieving the qualification

Candidates will need to pass all three units within a five year period to achieve the overall qualification. The five year period commences from the result declaration date of the first successful unit.

Unit pass standard

The pass standard for each unit may vary according to pre-determined criteria but is normalised to

45% for the written papers (IGC1 and GC2) &
60% for the practical application unit (GC3).

Unit certificates

Candidates who are successful in an individual unit will be issued with a unit certificate, normally within 40 working days of the issue of the result notification. Units are not graded and the unit certificates will show a ‘Pass’ only.

Qualification grades

When candidates have been awarded a unit certificate for all three units (ie, have achieved a Pass in units IGC1, GC2 and GC3), the marks are added together and a final grade is awarded as follows:

– Pass (150 – 179) marks
– Credit (180 – 209) marks
– Distinction (210 or Above) marks

Re-sitting unit/s

If a candidate’s performance in a unit is lower than a pass, the candidate may re-sit just the unit in which they have been unsuccessful providing that they re-sit within 5-years of the result declaration date for their first successful unit. Where a candidate has yet to achieve a successful unit of a qualification, the 5-year rule does not apply until a unit has been successfully achieved.
