What is involved:
The course is now only two units (NG1 & NG2) and the content has been restructured and updated to reflect modern Health & Safety practices in 2019. The net result is a small reduction in the overall study hours.

The major change is with the assessment where there is now only one exam and one practical assessment.

Unit NG1 is examined by a formal 2 hour written exam (replacing NGC1)

Unit NG2 is assessed by a practical assessment (this is a longer assessment than the previous GC3)
