Staffordshire, United Kingdom (30 June, 2011) – Phoenix Health and Safety, a leading UK provider of health and safety training and health and safety consultancy services, have just received news that they are now accredited to offer the NVQ5 Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety.

The qualification is another possible route to entry for full membership of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), instead of completing a NEBOSH Diploma.

Phoenix reports that many people prefer this route to IOSH membership as it doesn’t involve formal study time or exams like NEBOSH Diploma, as it is predominantly work-based and requires candidates to complete evidence portfolios to show how they have met the requirements in their job.

Phoenix Health and Safety reminds potential candidates that they still need to be in a job that will encompass all parts of the syllabus, such as a Health and Safety Advisor or Manager, to complete this diploma. The course will cost £1795 + VAT from Phoenix, which includes induction days and full tutor/assessor support until the qualification is achieved.

“We are keen to offer the highest level of support and expertise possible to any students interested in becoming an IOSH member,” commented a spokesperson for Phoenix Health and Safety. “Everyone at Phoenix is delighted to have the opportunity to offer this comprehensive course and alternative to the NEBOSH diploma, as it allows us to provide a learning experience to suit everyone. Look out for more information on our website soon!”
