The interviews are not assessed but if you do not attend your scheduled closing interview NEBOSH will not publish your results.
NEBOSH use the Closing Interview is a key part of their malpractice procedures and have set up multiple steps:

NEBOSH Closing Interview Requirements

During the interview you will be required to:

- Show your identification to check you are who you say you are. This is the same as an invigilated examination.
- Show the room you are in to make sure you are alone.
- Answer questions about your examination.

NEBOSH provide Project Skills Solutions with a list of interview questions that are bespoke to the examination paper and designed to check you have the underpinning knowledge and understanding behind your answers.
Project Skills Solutions will ask the questions in a random sequence so not every learner will be asked the same combination of questions.
Project Skills Solutions will complete a Closing Interview Record Sheet for every learner.

Nebosh Open Book Exam

In 2020 NEBOSH introduced open book examinations as a permanent replacement for the invigilated paper-based examinations. Along with the NG2 project, this allows the NEBOSH National General Certificate qualification to now be completed remotely without attending a classroom or exam venue.

The open book examination is designed to test your knowledge and ability as it would be used in a real-world scenario rather than testing your memory it tests your application of health and safety knowledge.

You'll have 24 hours to complete your open book exam and you can structure your time as you see fit. NEBOSH suggest you should allow 4-5 hours in total for the exam.

Practical – Risk assessment

The aim of the practical assessment is to show you now have the skills to complete a risk assessment of your workplace. Perfect to show off your new skills and apply them right away in a real-world situation.

To help complete your assessment you’ll be provided with a thorough guidance document, a checklist you can use to make sure you include everything in your submission and an example submission. Before starting your risk assessment you should complete the NEBOSH syllabus, elements 1 to 11.

During your course, your tutor will spend time discussing the project with the group using homework and activities to get you thinking in practical terms.

So how long should the risk assessment take? NEBOSH advise it should take around 3 hours to complete, but this can vary. Keep in mind the practical is not about creating huge amounts of paperwork, much like in the real world it’s about identifying realistic and sensible measures to control risks in the workplace.

The practical is based on the HSE’s approach to risk assessment, and information on the HSE website can help you if you’d like to do some further reading.

Stages of the assessment:

  1. Description of the organisation and methodology used
  2. Risk assessment
  3. Prioritise 3 actions with justification
  4. Review, communicate and check

    In 2020 NEBOSH introduced open book examinations as a permanent replacement for the invigilated paper-based examinations. Along with the NG2 project, this allows the NEBOSH National General Certificate qualification to now be completed remotely without attending a classroom or exam venue.

    The open book examination is designed to test your knowledge and ability as it would be used in a real-world scenario rather than testing your memory it tests your application of health and safety knowledge.

    You’ll have 24 hours to complete your open book exam and you can structure your time as you see fit. NEBOSH suggest you should allow 4-5 hours in total for the exam.

    Nebosh Practical – Risk assessment

    The aim of the practical assessment is to show you now have the skills to complete a risk assessment of your workplace. Perfect to show off your new skills and apply them right away in a real-world situation.

    To help complete your assessment you’ll be provided with a thorough guidance document, a checklist you can use to make sure you include everything in your submission and an example submission. Before starting your risk assessment you should complete the NEBOSH syllabus, elements 1 to 11.

    During your course, your tutor will spend time discussing the project with the group using homework and activities to get you thinking in practical terms.

    So how long should the risk assessment take? NEBOSH advise it should take around 3 hours to complete, but this can vary. Keep in mind the practical is not about creating huge amounts of paperwork, much like in the real world it’s about identifying realistic and sensible measures to control risks in the workplace.

    The practical is based on the HSE’s approach to risk assessment, and information on the HSE website can help you if you’d like to do some further reading.

    Stages of the assessment:

    1. Description of the organisation and methodology used
    2. Risk assessment
    3. Prioritise 3 actions with justification
    4. Review, communicate and check
