IOSH Certificates

Is this an official course?

Yes, we are an IOSH approved training provider. At the end of the course, the certificate is an official IOSH certificate.

Does the certificate have an expiry date?

No. Once you have successfully completed any IOSH Certificate, it will never expire and will be valid indefinitely from the date of issue; however, IOSH recommends that you take a refresher course every three years to keep your knowledge up to date.

What’s the difference between digital and paper certificates?

A digital certificate is provided in PDF format, whilst the paper version is the hard printed version.

Both certificates come from IOSH, via ourselves. Soon, the digital certificates will go directly from IOSH to the delegate.

As a provider, there are cost savings to us when using the digital version, and we have gladly passed on those savings to you, which is why there are two prices.


How does online learning work?

The delegate has the flexibility to learn when it’s convenient for them. The platform is available 24/7; the delegate can study from any location, on any device, dipping in and out as their time requires.

How long does the delegate have?

Each delegate has six months of access. In exceptional circumstances, we will extend, but further three months extensions can be purchased if needed.
