Staffordshire, United Kingdom, (27th October, 2011) – Phoenix Health and Safety, a leading UK provider of health and safety training and consultancy services, announce they are now accredited to offer an NVQ5 Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety.

Phoenix Health and Safety has recently announced they can now provide candidates with an NVQ5 Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety.NVQ5 can be an alternative route of entry for IOSH full membership. As the NVQ5 course is work-based, candidates will have to complete evidence portfolios to demonstrate how they have met the health and safety requirements in their job role.

As this course does not involve formal study time or exams, many people often find this is the preferred route into IOSH membership. However, it is essential that candidates are in a job that will encompass all aspects of the course syllabus, so they should be in roles such as a Health and Safety Manager or Advisor. The course fee is £1,795 plus VAT – and this will cover the costs of the induction days and full tutor/assessor support until the course is complete.

A spokesperson for Phoenix Health and Safety commented: “We are delighted to announce we are now an accredited provider of NVQ5 Diplomas in Occupational Health and Safety. Our mission is to provide our customers with health and safety training which complements their lifestyle, which is why we are pleased to offer our customers an alternative route into full IOSH membership.”
