NEBOSH will soon be offering an Arabic language version of its most popular examination, the International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety.
The first International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety exams in Arabic will be available from 1 December 2012, with an official launch taking place at Intersec from 15th-17th January 2013 in Dubai, UAE.
The Middle East is currently NEBOSH’s largest international market, with registrations up by 56% on 2010/11.
“We’re taking our most popular international qualification and making it available in the language which is most commonly spoken in our largest overseas market,” said NEBOSH Chief Executive, Teresa Budworth.
“We anticipate this will result in further growth in NEBOSH exam entries from overseas, which overall now surpass those from our UK home territory.”
Arabic, in its various forms, is spoken by around 280 million people, making it one of the top six most commonly used languages in the world.
An Arabic language version of NEBOSH’s introductory level Health and Safety at Work qualification was launched in 2011 and has been well received.
Courses leading to NEBOSH qualifications are offered by around 500 course providers in more than 100 countries around the world.
