NVQ Level 3 Health and Safety FAQ

Who is the Level 3 NVQ in Occupational Health & Safety best suited for?

The Level 3 NVQ is ideal for individuals who are currently employed in roles involving health & safety practices and responsibilities. It's particularly beneficial for those seeking to enhance their understanding and effectiveness in workplace health and safety, and for those aiming to achieve AIOSH/TechIOSH Membership of IOSH.

What are the prerequisites for enrolling in the Level 3 NVQ?

While there are no strict prerequisites, it is highly recommended that participants have undergone some prior training in health and safety, particularly in risk assessment. Holding a recognized Level 2 qualification in health and safety, or certifications like IOSH Managing Safely or SMSTS, would be advantageous and provide a solid foundation for the course.

How is the assessment conducted for the Level 3 NVQ, and what is the expected time commitment?

Assessment is based on competence, skills, knowledge, and understanding. You'll be required to provide evidence that demonstrates how and why you carry out your health & safety-related work. The course can be completed in about 3 months with a commitment of around 2 hours per week. However, if you're able to dedicate more time and already have the necessary evidence, it's possible to complete the course in as little as 1 month.
