NEBOSH takes all instances of fraudulent certificates seriously. Each unit certificate and parchment has a number of anti-forgery and anti-fraud features, including a unique identifying number that enables NEBOSH to check to whom it was issued.

Most fraudulently used certificates have been made available online – for example, they are posted on LinkedIn by the genuine holder. NEBOSH strongly advises against posting certificates online or making reference to any identifying numbers relating to your NEBOSH studies, such as your student number or certificate reference number.
