Alumni Testimonials

Sagar Kumar Dutta


I am Sagar Kumar Dutta from Chhattisgarh, India successfully completed the courses of NEBOSH HSW-1 with 80 marks and HSW-2 with 92 marks from March Batch of NIST Delhi. Before joining the institute I was quite afraid about this course. I also had experience of teaching as a Faculty in organisation and honestly saying I get impressed at the teaching technique of NIST Trainer's which was very excellent. The way he gives examples and uses simple language makes me confident and this is the reason I have done it. Timings of class was comfortable and tea breaks too. The telephonic counseling given by Sales Team was good and help me for selecting this course. My writing speed is not good enough that's why I am not sure for doing IGC, but NIST Sales team advised me for HSW course. So, This is my best experience from NIST Delhi and I will definitely join NIST Delhi for IGC as soon as possible.
