Assessment

Units IG1 and IG2 are taught units.

Unit IG1 is assessed by an “open book” case study assessment. A learner has 24 hours to complete the assessment after receiving the case study information, but NEBOSH believe they should be able to finish the questions in 4-5 hours. This is followed by a closing interview to confirm that the submitted assessment is all the learners own work.
