The NEBOSH National Diploma is accredited by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) at Level 10 in the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). For users in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, this is broadly comparable to a Vocationally-Related Qualification (VRQ) at Level 6 in the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). Both are comparable to Honours degree level.
