To complete this course, learners must pass the IOSH Managing Occupational Health and Wellbeing Exam and Project. The cost of the exam and project is already included in the cost of the course.
The IOSH Managing Occupational Health and Wellbeing Exam demonstrates the student’s understanding of the information contained within the course. The exam is taken online, so there is no need to attend a training centre. The exam consists of multiple choice questions and must be completed within 30 minutes. Students will need to achieve at least 25 points from a possible 41 to pass the exam. Students can have two attempts at the exam. A student will have to resit the whole course if they do not achieve the required marks on the second attempt. (We do not charge for resits.)
The Managing Occupational Health and Wellbeing Project demonstrates the student’s ability to conduct a health risk assessment and action plan. The assessment can be conducted at the workplace, or anywhere with which the student is familiar. The project is completed online and must be emailed to the HSQE tutors for assessment. Draft copies of the project can be sent to the tutor before formal assessment. The project template consists of two parts:
Part 1 is the health risk assessment
Part 2 is the health action plan
Students need to achieve at least 26 points from a possible 41 points to pass the project.
