[mk_image src=”https://www.shponline.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/glasses-983947_640.jpg” image_width=”800″ image_height=”350″ crop=”true” lightbox=”false” frame_style=”simple” target=”_self” caption_location=”inside-image” align=”left” margin_bottom=”10″]

There are now a number of options for getting trained in health and safety – from postgraduate degrees, to NVQs, NEBOSH certificate/diploma and the new qualifications developed by NCRQ. But which health and safety qualification is right for you?

With the profession becoming increasingly about the importance of soft skills, but the need to gain technical competence too – what does each of these career development qualifications offer? Which is best for the type of career in health and safety you want to pursue? And are the current qualifications fit for purpose in a changing world?

We are delighted to welcome Teresa Budworth, CEO of NEBOSH, Iain Evans, Chief Executive of NCRQ, Dr Shaun Lundy of University of Greenwich and Gary Fallaize, Managing Director of RRC to discuss the available options in our next webinar.
