NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Health and Safety

The NEBOSH National Construction Certificate is for Supervisors, Managers and CDM co-ordinators within the construction industry who are required to ensure that activities under their control are undertaken safely, and for those concerned with the management of buildings who may need to ensure that contractors are working safely.

The qualification is also appropriate for supervisors and managers working in other industries such as utilities, and even broadcasting, where temporary workplaces are a feature of their activities.

The NEBOSH National Construction Certificate consists of three units, each separately assessed:

NGC1 Management of health and safety

NCC1 Managing and controlling hazards in construction activities

NCC2 Construction health and safety practical application.

Those who have passed NGC1 during the past 5 years need not take this unit and should register for the "Conversion" course instead. (NGC1 is a module within the National General Certificate).

This course is fully inclusive of:-

• 17 day's Tuition
• Exam + Registration + Certificate Fees
• 1 day Written Examination & Practical Examination
• Course Material and Text Book
• Lunch and Refreshments throughout the Course


Course formats can vary and there is usually a break between the NGC1 and two weeks of NCC1 training.  

Check the Course Outline for a specific event to verify the exact number of training days and start dates for the two classroom modules.

The assessment must normally be taken within 14 days of a written examination.  The practical examination is internally assessed by the course provider and must be marked by an experienced and qualified safety professional.

Candidates will be awarded a unit certificate for each unit passed. Once a candidate has successfully completes all three units, the overall qualification parchment will be issued.
