Many individuals attend the NEBOSH Construction Certificate Course as it gives them the skills and knowledge to fulfil their health and safety responsibilities. The course is aimed at managers, supervisors and principal designers, those primary responsibility is to manage contractors and sites under the Construction Design and Management (CDM) Regulations 2015.
The NEBOSH Construction Certificate provides a good foundation on which to build your knowledge on health and safety, as the course allows for progression onto the NEBOSH Diploma, or the ability to branch out and specialise in areas such as fire, environment and health and well-being in the workplace.
No previous health and safety knowledge is required, although it is advisable that candidates do have an understanding of basic practical aspects of the construction industry. It should also be noted that the practical assessment requires students to undertake an inspection of a construction workplace and to prepare an appropriate report.
This course is an intense learning experience and delegates should be ready to commit and dedicate their spare time to study and revision outside of the classroom. Due to the nature of the examinations, a thorough understanding of the English language and reading and writing skills are required in order to attend this course.
Please note that the minimum age to complete NEBOSH courses is 20.
If you have successfully passed NGC1 within the past five years, you will only be required to attend CC1 written examination and complete the CC2 work based practical. Call our team on 0333 666 0555 to discuss this further.
Delegates will attend the course for 17 days, covering all the modules of NGC1, NCC1 and NCC2. A revision day leading up to the examination date will also enable delegates to get the most out of their course and utilise the instructor's knowledge for more help. It is strongly recommended that delegates complete all homework set.
Our instructors are experienced tutor for the NEBOSH General Certificate and Construction Certificate programmes. Their knowledge and experience with both teaching and marking the assessments allows for delegates to receive guidance on both the course content, as well as the style in which NEBOSH require their exam questions to be answered. Their marking style enables delegates to understand how to answer questions effectively and the homework set allows for delegates to receive continuous feedback to strengthen their knowledge.
NGC1 and NCC1 modules are assessed by two two hour written examinations. Each written examination consists of ten 'short answer' questions (8 marks each) and one 'long answer' question (20 marks). NCC2 is assessed by one practical assessment carried out in the delegate's own workplace within 10 working days of the written examination.
Delegates are required to complete all 3 units within a five year period to achieve the qualification. There are three overall grades that can be attained from NEBOSH, a pass, credit or distinction. All marks from the individual modules are added together and the grades are awarded. Delegates can expect to be notified of their pass mark approximately 2 months after the examination.
The qualification is divided into three units, each of which is assessed separately:
- NGC1 - Management of Health and Safety
- NCC1 - Managing and controlling hazards in construction activities
- NCC2 - Health and safety practical application

"Delivery of the course was good with a nice mixture of the practical assessments which broke up the course delivery"
- Sam Fisk
"I previously undertook the course and exam at an alternative provider, however the support from Kentec and information provided is much better. Martin has lots of knowledge and the way he delivers courses keeps the day interactive and better way to retain information."
"The course was a lot of work and sometimes stressful, but that was to be expected. The knowledge from the tutor was great. The feedback sessions for the homework and examination preparation really helped me to pass the exam. I enjoyed the course, the others on the course and the tutor is great"
- Nicola Anderson
"Could not fault the support of the tutors and the others on the course. Was not expecting the level of support I have had from the others on the course, but we are encouraged to share resources and information which has helped us all. The tutor's knowledge of health and safety is indisputable. Brilliant course and support. Go and book on this course now as you won’t find better tutors!"
