The NEBOSH Construction Certificate aims to provide those making day-to-day decisions in construction work with a broad knowledge of health and safety in order to ensure that the health and safety implications of their decisions are properly taken into account. The vast majority of occupational injuries and incidents of ill-health are avoidable by good health and safety management; and good health and safety management is an essential element of good overall management.

The Syllabus

The syllabus is divided into 3 units:

The Examinations

NEBOSH sets and marks two written examination papers, Papers NGC1 and NCC1. Each paper contains one 20-mark question and ten 8-mark questions. The time allowed for each paper is two hours and candidates are required to answer all questions.

NCC2 (the practical assessment) is set and marked by a suitably qualified assessor at Woodward SHE Ltd, to a standard set and moderated by NEBOSH.

Entry Criteria

Whereas the syllabus and assessment requirements for the NEBOSH National General Certificate previously formed part of the Construction Certificate, the revised syllabus is now entirely stand-alone. Some major rationalisation of the syllabus which avoids the same issues being dealt with both in a general context and in relation to construction work, means that the Construction Certificate is approximately at the same level as before but can be achieved from a shorter programme of study.

This means that there are no formal entry criteria to the NEBOSH Construction Certificate programme.
