Popular FAQ's

An open book exam ability, knowledge application, and analytical and critical thinking skills are assessed in the same way as an invigilated paper-based exam. Delegates can complete an open book exam at home, or another suitable location, with access to textbooks, course notes and the internet. They have up to 48 hours to complete the NEBOSH open book exam, but we find that most candidates only take between four and five hours.
