This Level 6 NVQ Conversion Diploma in Occupational Health & Safety Practice is aimed at professionals who already hold a Level 4 or 5 Health and Safety NVQ. This qualification is designed for learners who are responsible for Health & Safety in their workplace.

There is an adapted portfolio to be completed made up of CPD requirements and additional evidence. Strict Assessment Criteria mapping is carried out from the previously attained qualification to fully Recognise Prior Learning (RPL). This in turn then allows the learner to achieve the new Level 6 NVQ Diploma Occupational Health & Safety Practice from ProQual Awarding Body. If you are already maintaining CPD with IOSH or IIRSM, most of this evidence will already be available.

The Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Health and Safety Practice is a recognised and fully-accredited qualification.
