      NEBOSH Certificate in Environmental Management 2021 Update

      The new improved April 2021 syllabus has been developed by NEBOSH following extensive consultation with key stakeholders. The syllabus content remains broadly the same as the previous specification as the technical content is in line with best environmental management practice. However, the assessments have been changed as follows:

      • The previous EC1 structured response examination has been replaced with an open book examination with real-life scenario and a number of theoretical and practical questions on environmental management. This gives learners the flexibility to take the examination without needing to sit at an examination centre.
      • The previous EC2 risk assessment has been replaced by a more relevant practical assessment which requires learners to assess environmental aspects and impacts in their chosen workplace.

      • Planning for and dealing with environmental emergencies
      • Minimum unit tuition time
      • Recommended private study time
      • At PHSC we've added extended content on Carbon Reduction as a key feature of improving your sustainability credentials.

      By the end of the training, you will be able to:

      • Understand a range of environmental issues in order to improve performance and reduce harm.
      • Work with an environmental management system and contribute to continual improvement.
      • Recognise environmental aspects and evaluate current controls.
      • Support decision-making with ethical, legal, and financial arguments.
      • Understand the links between your organisation’s activities and wider environmental issues.

      The training is conducted over 5 days via remote classroom using case studies, problem solving, and other practical techniques. Following this tuition, delegates will undertake the OBE examination.

      The NEBOSH Environmental Certificate consists of two units, each separately assessed. Candidates may choose to take one or both of the units at the same time or at different times, subject to the timescales outlined in this guide.

      Unit EC1: Management and control of environmental hazards

      Unit EC2: Environmental practical application 

      For candidates planning to take both units together, Unit EC2 is not normally offered independently of the taught unit (Unit EC1). Candidates will normally be required to complete the 2 assessments within 10 working days of sitting the examination for Unit EC1, on a date to be agreed with their accredited course provider.

      NEBOSH applies best practice in relation to assessment setting and marking. NEBOSH uses external assessment for written examinations and assignments: scripts are sent to NEBOSH and undergo rigorous marking, checking and results determination processes to ensure accuracy and consistency.

      This NEBOSH qualification is for anyone who needs to gain a sound understanding of the principles of environmental management and is relevant for both UK and international markets. Specifically, it is relevant for:

      • Anyone who is responsible for managing environmental issues as part of their work.
      • Anyone wishing to have a career in environmental management.

      Please note that the standard of English required by learners studying for the EMC must be such that they can both understand and articulate the concepts contained in the syllabus.

      Qualification Summary

      NEBOSH qualifications are categorised as ‘Other’ qualifications by SQA Accreditation in Scotland. These are categorised as Vocationally-Related Qualifications (VRQs) in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

      VRQs provide the knowledge and practical skills required for particular job roles through a structured study-based training programme, which combines the assessment of knowledge and understanding in written examinations with practical application of learning in the workplace. VRQs are a popular type of qualification because they are nationally recognised, flexible and offer routes for progression to employment or further study.

      In England this is comparable to a Vocationally Related Qualification (VRQ) at level 3 within the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) and Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF), or an A-Level standard.
