together or at different times.
Unit ED1: Controlling environmental aspects
• Unit ED1 is a taught unit which is assessed by a 3-hour written examination
• The written examination consists of eight ‘long-answer’ questions (20 marks each);
candidates choose which five questions to answer out of the eight
• Student scripts are marked by external examiners appointed by NEBOSH
• A sample examination question paper can be found in Section 6.
Unit IDEM2: Environmental regulation
• Unit IDEM2 consists of a written assignment set by NEBOSH
• The report should be approximately 8000 words in total, excluding the references,
bibliography and appendices. No penalty will be applied to reports which exceed 8000
words but students should aim to keep their word count under 12000
• Submission dates for Diploma assignments are in February, May, August and November
each year

Unit Pass Standards

The pass standard for each unit may vary according to pre-determined criteria but is normalised

Unit Certificates

Students who are successful in an individual unit will be issued with a unit certificate, normally
