NEBOSH-NCC-1024x181

Course Overview

The NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health covers the main legal requirements relating to health and safety in UK construction work, including an understanding of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015. It includes identification and control of construction workplace hazards, and the practical application of this knowledge.

The NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health aims to build on the knowledge gained in the NEBOSH National General Certificate. It is established as a leading award in construction health and safety. The course is aimed at Supervisors, Managers and Principle Designers within the construction industry who are required to ensure that activities under their control are undertaken safely. It is likely to prove useful 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. In addition, those working in health and safety in other occupational settings, but who require additional construction-specific knowledge may also benefit from the course.

Holders of the NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health are entitled to Associate Membership (AIOSH) of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). The qualification also meets the academic requirements for Technician membership (TechIOSH) of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and Associate membership (AIIRSM) of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).

Those who hold the NEBOSH Construction Certificate are eligible to apply for the CSCS Academically Qualified Person (AQP) yellow/white card whilst they gain vocational qualifications or membership of a recognised professional body. This card is valid for five years and is currently non-renewable. All applicants must still pass the CITB Managers and Professionals Health, Safety and Environment Test.

Assessment

The course is presented in three different course models.

– The 15 Day Course; this is a combined NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health and NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health course which covers the NG1, NG2, NCC1 and NCC2 units.

– The 10 Day Course; this is the “standard” NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health course which covers the NCC1 and NCC2 units.

– The 5 Day course; this is the NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health “Bolt-on” course which covers the required content to convert from Unit NG2 to Unit NCC1.

Unit NG1 is assessed by an “open book” case study assessment. A learner has 24 hours to complete the assessment after receiving the case study information, but NEBOSH believe they should be able to finish the questions in 4-5 hours. This is followed by a closing interview to confirm that the submitted assessment is all the learners own work.

Unit NCC1 is assessed by a two-hour written examination. Each written examination consists of ten ‘short-answer’ questions and one ‘long-answer’ question.

Unit NCC2 is a two-hour practical examination carried out by the candidate in their own workplace.
