NEBOSH Environmental Management Certificate


This course is delivered in association with Phoenix Health and Safety.

The construction industry undoubtedly has a significant impact on the environment, from physical build and excavation, to the management of waste and pollution. However, with more information available to us than ever before, there are clear steps we can take to manage the impact and take social responsibility for the work we carry out.

The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) is a leading global provider of health, safety and environmental qualifications. With internationally recognised qualifications, NEBOSH aims to increase the competence of safety and environmental professionals and individuals at all levels in the workplace. 

This NEBOSH Environmental Management course teaches delegates about environmental and social responsibility and how to make a positive impact in their work.

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 24 hours to complete the NEBOSH open book exam, but we find that most candidates only take between four and five hours.
