NEBOSH Construction Certificate
The NEBOSH Construction Certificate, or NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Health & Safety to give it its full title, is one of the most recognised health and safety qualificatons in the construction industry. It is aimed primarily at managers, supervisers, CDM co-ordinators and anyone else who is responsible for making sure that construction activities under their control are undertaken safely.
The scope of the NEBOSH Construction Certificate also makes it suitable for managers and supervisors who are not specifically in the construction industry, but have a need to oversee the safe construction of temporary workplaces and structures. An example includes outside broadcasting of sporting events such as golf tournaments where temporary stands, television camera stands etc. need to be erected.
Benefits of the NEBOSH Construction Certificate
The qualification meets the academic requirements to apply for Technician membership (Tech IOSH) of IOSH (the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health), and Associate membership (AIIRSM) of IIRSM (the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management).
Obtaining the NEBOSH Construction Certificate will allow you to:
1) movement of people and vehicles
2) mechanical and manual handling
3) work equipment
5) chemical and biological
6) physical and psychological
7) working at height
8) excavation work
9) confined spaces
At ATC Risk Management, we offer the NEBOSH Construction Certificate in two ways: the full course and a conversion course. The full course contains the mandatory NGC1 unit, which is the same unit that is taught in the NEBOSH General Certificate syllabus. This means that if you have already taken and passed the NEBOSH General Certificate in the last five years, you don't need to repeat this NGC1 unit. Candidates in this position can take the NEBOSH Construction Certficate conversion course which does not repeat this unit, and so is both shorter in duration and less expensive than the full NEBOSH Construction Certificate course.
The certificate achieved at the end of both courses is the same, i.e. the official NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Health & Safety; it just means that thanks to the modular make-up of the qualifications those who have already achieved the NGC1 unit do not have to do it all again!
This accredited NEBOSH qualification is assessed by one exam which lasts 2 hours, and a workplace-based practical inspection project. The exam is conducted in our training centres at the end of your course, and the project is completed in your own workplace. The project should take no longer than 3 hours to complete and you will have 7 days from the end of the course to return it to us by post. If you are currently unemployed, we can usually arrange somewhere for you to conduct a workplace assessment. If this is something you require, please contact us before booking.
If you are taking the full course, you will also have an exam at the end of the NGC1 unit.
Those who successfully complete the course and pass the assessments are awarded the official NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Health & Safety. Certificates are forwarded directly to the candidate by NEBOSH approximately 16 weeks after the completion of the course although results are usually issued within 10 weeks.

The full course includes the mandatory NGC1 unit and exam (the first week of the NEBOSH General Certificate). Because it does not matter about the order that the units are completed in, some of the course dates below have the NGC1 unit in the first week, whereas others have it in week 2.
