This format enables you to sit your NEBOSH assessment on your own, usually in your own home or another safe and suitable location where you can concentrate. However Open Book Exams are not an "easy alternative" to the traditional face to face invigilated examinations

While the questions you’ll be asked will be different to those in our previous closed book examinations, the OBE needs preparations. You will be presented with a scenario that describes a realistic workplace and situation. You will then be asked to carry out a series of tasks using evidence presented in the scenario, as well as the underpinning knowledge you have gained through your studies and revision.

"The scenario style questions definitely promote the candidates understanding and evaluation. You cannot get through the exam ‘parrot fashion’." Rebecca Docker, NEBOSH Examiner and Managing Director RD Safety Solutions
