The new improved syllabus April 2021 has been developed by NEBOSH following extensive consultation with key stakeholders, notably Learning Partners, employers, standards setting organisations, past and present learners and subject experts.
Why attend the NEBOSH Environmental Management Certificate?
The NEBOSH Environmental Certificate is a crucial first step towards establishing a lifelong professional career in environmental management, and gives you an excellent base to progress on to an Environmental Diploma.
This qualification is used by many organisations to help them achieve and maintain certification against recognised international standards, such as ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems, and will significantly improve the skills and knowledge of your team, enabling your organisation to meet its environmental objectives.
The NEBOSH Environmental Certificate will enable you to understand how to reduce environmental impacts, protecting you from litigation, damaging incidents and loss of reputation.
What are the differences between the May 2012 and April 2021 specification?
The syllabus content has been thoroughly researched and checked, and its content has remained broadly the same as the previous specification. This is because the technical content is still in line with current 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. Learners will be required to review a real-life scenario and answer a number of theoretical and practical questions on environmental management. This gives learners the flexibility to take the examination anywhere in the world, 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• The previous EC2 risk assessment has been replaced by a more relevant practical assessment, which requires learners to assess environmental aspects and impacts in their chosen workplace.
What is required for this qualification?
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.
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.
Five days tuition via remote classroom using case studies, problem solving, and other practical techniques, followed by OBE examination. Expert trainers with many years practicalexperience in environmental management.

The trainers work tirelessly to ensure everyone is at ease and involved in the learning process regardless of employment background. The continual support, marked homework with constructive feedback and continual guidance gave me the confidence I needed to sit the exams. I really enjoyed the well-designed course and friendly learning environment.
And the site visit to the RBLI brought everything we had learnt together.
