Here’s the opportunity to earn lakhs in foreign countries. Thrissur-based Al Salama School of Safety Studies is offering students an attractive yet unique course to have a lucrative career, even in the age of pandemic



After completing high profile courses such as BTech and MBA, thousands of graduates are still in the dark when it comes to find a secure job. And, hundreds of thousands of students are engaged in low-profile jobs even after attaining heavy degrees, indeed, with much less remuneration.

Now, forget about high degrees, complex courses, and career recruitment tensions. Here’s an opportunity to earn commendable salary, even in the midst of pandemic like Covid-19.

Thrissur-based Al Salama School of Safety Studies will equip the students to get a lucrative and secure job in health and safety sector. Students just need to think differently, just have an open mind, and forget about the conventional, established routes to get jobs.

Multinational companies prefer candidates with NEBOSH qualification for their health and safety departments. And in Kerala, Al Salama School of Safety Studies conducts the NEBOSH-accredited health and safety course with the longest duration, according to Al Salama School of Safety Studies spokesperson Ajas K Jaleel.

There is great demand for health and safety students in foreign countries like the UK and the UAE. Students with quality certification in health and safety courses can land in jobs with beginning salary of Rs 60,000-Rs 12,0000.

Al Salama School of safety Studies provides health and Safety courses with NEBOSH certification, preparing students with onsite training to get jobs in corporate companies abroad.

“Our institution is an accredited course provider of NEBOSH. It is registered with NEBOSH as ACP#1010,” says the spokesperson of Al Salama School of Safety Studies.

According to Al Salama, this globally recognized qualification in occupational health and safety offers wide range of job opportunities in India and abroad.

There are international norms that a company with 50 employees needs to employ a safety officer. And there lies the possibility for such a course. NEBOSH-accreditation makes the course unique and appealing.

What is NEBOSH?

Founded in 1979, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) is a UK-based independent examination board delivering vocational qualifications in health, safety and environmental practice and management.

Optimistic students

“What I felt during my study at Al Salama is that they have well trained faculty members. And the coaching part is excellent. I believe that the institute’s coaching helped me in passing all the papers in the first attempt itself. They have also developed a good study module,” says Arjun Sushil, a student who successfully completed training at Al Salama School of Safety Studies.

Sreeraj, who went Al Salama for NEBOSH certification, echoed Arjun’s view. “Al Salama is one of the best institutes for health and safety courses. I have passed NEBOSH with high marks. The trainers were really helpful,” Sreeraj says.

Students with a qualification of plus two can apply for these courses, and Al Salama assures placement for all of them. Even in the time of recessions, the demand for these courses is on high, according to experts.

“It is our responsibility to equip our students to get a lucrative job. We have here the best faculty members with great expertise in the domain.
