You will also be able to help your employer to comply with the law and good practice, as well as help them avoid the huge costs from incidents and ill-health.

 
Achieving the qualification 

The IGC has two unit assessments (see ‘Qualification key features’ for details on the assessments and the pass standards); you must achieve a ‘Pass’ in each unit to be awarded the qualification. 
You will have five years to complete your qualification. The five-year period starts from the date you passed your first successful unit (we call this the ‘declaration date’). Any unit that is five or more years old will not count towards the qualification and you will need to retake this/these unit(s) if you still want to complete the qualification
