Diploma in Oc­cu­pa­tional Safety & Health pro­gramme

FIC’s Diploma in Oc­cu­pa­tional Safety & Health pro­gramme has two added val­ues — it is ac­cred­ited by IOSH (In­sti­tu­tion of Oc­cu­pa­tional Safety & Health), UK, that recog­nises course qual­i­fi­ca­tions and safety prac­ti­tion­ers world­wide.

Se­condly, FIC stu­dents have di­rect en­try into the fi­nal-year de­gree pro­gramme in Oc­cu­pa­tional Safety & Health with Univer­sity of Green­wich (UOG), UK and Mid­dle­sex Univer­sity, UK.

FIC has a proven track record in suc­cess­fully run­ning the OSH diploma.

Hav­ing started in 2005, this pro­gramme has be­come one of its spe­cialised pro­grammes as its lec­tur­ers com­prise in­dus­try ex­perts who are pas­sion­ate in shar­ing their knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence.

Ed­u­ca­tional and ex­po­sure site vis­its are of­ten ar­ranged. All stu­dents must ful­fil a min­i­mum of two months’ prac­ti­cal train­ing with lo­cal cor­po­ra­tions in this in­dus­try and ar­ranged by the col­lege.

Many grad­u­ates have been ab­sorbed into th­ese part­ner com­pa­nies af­ter their prac­ti­cal pe­riod while some are em­ployed in Brunei and other lo­cal com­pa­nies.

To reg­is­ter for the DIPOSH, a stu­dent will need three SPM cred­its and a pass in Ba­hasa Malaysia. Bu­mipu­tra stu­dents with a min­i­mum of five SPM cred­its in­clud­ing Math­e­mat­ics and a pass in English are also el­i­gi­ble for a full ed­u­ca­tion loan from Ma­jlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA).
