Health and safety FAQs

We usually recommend completing a refresher course every three years as best practice. Some certificates, such as First Aid, Mental Health First Aid and Fire Warden, will expire every three years. To stay compliant, you must complete a refresher course within 28 days of expiry of a First Aid certificate, otherwise you must resit the original course to re-qualify.

IOSH recommend you refresh your Working Safely or Managing Safely qualification every three years to keep your knowledge up-to-date.

The level of health and safety training you need differs on a case-by-case basis and will often depend on your job role and responsibilities.

We would advise you to look at the course prerequisites on the outline of the course that you’re interested in to see if there are any previous qualifications required. However, if you’re in doubt, you can contact our team of helpful course advisors who will help you choose the right course.

Two of the most widely recognised health and safety qualifications are IOSH and NEBOSH, and both qualifications are delivered to the highest standard. There is a slight difference in the purpose of these courses - IOSH is designed to provide basic health and safety training while NEBOSH qualifies people to work in a health and safety job role.

You’ll receive your health and safety certificate upon completion of your chosen course and once you have passed any associated exams. In some instances, where the certificate is provided by an awarding body, your certificate will be sent to you several weeks after you have completed the course (for example, the NEBOSH General Certificate is sent after the exam).

Yes! We offer a 0% finance solution through GTG EasyPay, so you can pay off the cost of your course in instalments over a three-, six- or ten-month period.
