What else should I know?

NEBOSH does not set specific formal entry requirements for this qualification. However, it should be noted that the achievement of the NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety (IGC) or equivalent prior to undertaking the International Technical Certificate in Oil and Gas Operational Safety course is highly recommended. This qualification is designed as a specialist sector-specific supplement to the NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety (IGC) rather than to replace knowledge and understanding of general health and safety gained as part of the IGC.

There are no entry requirements for this course, though the standard of English required by students must be such that they can both understand and express the concepts contained in the syllabus.

NEBOSH recommends that candidates undertaking this qualification should reach a minimum standard of English equivalent to an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score of 6.0 or higher in IELTS tests in order to be accepted onto an International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety programme.
