Nebosh IG Course in Pakistan
The New International General (IG) qualifications are the upgraded version of the old NEBOSH IGC qualifications.

NEBOSH have identified that the old qualification included overly complicated technical content, which was above the level required and not necessarily in line with current business needs.The English language used within the new qualification has also been reviewed and the use of over-complicated terminology has been significantly reduced where possible.
