Alumni Testimonials


Mr. Hormuz Siodia


At first, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to the management of NIST for considering, implementing, and rolling out the virtual classroom mode of training for the NEBOSH IGC course. The efforts that have gone in the background to get the approvals from NEBOSH, selecting a suitable video-conferencing platform for conducting the virtual classroom training and testing it rigorously, along with constant liaisoning with NEBOSH and students for feedback, suggestions, etc., is truly commendable. This is something that we as students never get to know of. It is indeed a dramatic shift to move from traditional classroom-based training to a virtual one and certainly not an easy one to implement especially with a pandemic raging throughout the world.

Having initially opted for the classroom-based training and examination of NEBOSH IGC at NIST, and thereafter for the same to be converted into a virtual based training and open book examination, it was natural for myself to accept and follow along the course of developments that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought about.

Having completed the first virtual classroom training session with NIST from 22nd June to 8th July 2020, I have found this experience to be a wonderfully pleasant one. I would like to thank my instructor, Mr. Mayank Gautam for the wonderful way in which he has delivered the training for the NEBOSH IGC course. In a classroom-based environment, it is easy for the teacher to engage with the students through discussions, eye contact, asking questions, receiving feedback, using a whiteboard and marker, etc., but when it comes to a virtual classroom mode of training, the entire element of personal contact takes a completely different turn. Herein I feel the skill in teaching lies in capturing the attention of the student and engaging him into the virtual training session.

My instructor Mr. Mayan Gautam has done full and complete justice in not only teaching the entire curriculum of the NEBOSH IGC course wonderfully but equally kept us very engaged throughout the session with questions to test our understanding of the subject, sharing of his work experiences in the field of safety to help us co-relate a particular topic, followed by asking our understanding and feedback at the end of each section or chapter before moving on to the next. Thank you for all your efforts for every single day of the course, from morning till evening, continuously teaching us.

Just as in a successful dance where it Takes Two to Tango, I feel this expression is equally very apt when it comes to virtual classroom training too. It requires not only the teacher but the student as well to work together in perfect tandem. The efforts that an instructor puts into teaching and imparting the knowledge of the course needs to be equally reciprocated by a student through daily revision and reading of what has been taught in the day's session from the course handout. It also requires students to exercise their own due diligence to be punctual for the training session and stay focused in their own personal environment. The course training handout of NIST is excellent, to be honest. At the end of each element in the handout, there is a wonderful summary for quick and easy comprehension and revision too.

Globally as we shift to work from home (WFH) mode, similarly NEBOSH has shifted to a study and examination from home (SEFH) mode. Settling into this new transition comes with its own unique challenges such as the speed of the internet, quality, and stability of the broadband connection, etc. But to compensate and eliminate these issues too, NIST has been very thoughtful to have provided us students with the recording of the training sessions, wherein we can re-visit a particular day's session. So I really do appreciate this kind and thoughtful gesture of NIST. I guess only a GOLD learning partner of NEBOSH would think of this gesture for its students.

I also want to thank Mrs. Pooja Oak, Team Lead at NIST Pune for her wonderful support, prompt co-ordination and communication, right from the enrollment process at NIST. Thank you very much for all your excellent support and sincere efforts, which I know will continue along even after I successfully clear the IGC examination and receive the final NEBOSH IGC certificate in hand from you.

As we look forward to successfully clearing the first open-book examination (OBE) of NEBOSH IGC with the support and guidance from NIST, my heartfelt and sincere THANK YOU goes out to the entire team of NIST.
