Important note: Learners will be required to have access to Wi-fi to download the open book exam paper and to be competent users with word processing software such as MS Word to complete it.

ASSESSMENT & CERTIFICATION

Assessment is a two-step process:

Assessment

The assessment is an open book examination (OBE), which will be based on a realistic scenario, that will test both what you know and what you can do. You will be asked to carry out a series of tasks using evidence from the scenario and the underpinning knowledge gained through your studies and revision. You will have 48 hours to download, complete and submit your assessment.

Your assessment will be marked by an external examiner appointed by NEBOSH. These examiners are chosen for their experience and expertise to ensure that learners are assessed by the very best from our industry.

 

Results and Certification

Those who successfully complete the course and pass the assessment are awarded the official NEBOSH Certificate in Health and Safety Management for Construction.

 

All results for assessments should be received within 50 working days from the date of the examination or submission of the practical risk assessment. The specific date will be provided on examination entry confirmation forms.

Certificates will be posted direct to learners by us upon receipt from NEBOSH.

Important note: This course is a standalone qualification. This means that you will not be able to use units from other NEBOSH qualifications against any part of this qualification.

HOW ARE COURSES RUN?

Full-time Block Courses

What's Included?

There are NO hidden extras to pay on top of our health and safety training course prices, unlike other providers who charge extra for things like study books and exam fees.

 

All of our NEBOSH courses have the following included in the cost:

  • The course study book

  • Revision materials

  • All examination fees

  • All certification fees

  • Refreshments

  • Ongoing support

How are Courses Run?

Our NEBOSH courses are run as full-time block courses, usually, Monday to Friday 9:00 am until approximately 5:00 pm.

 

Whilst other health and safety training providers may attempt to offer the NEBOSH courses in other formats, such as e-learning, distance learning, one day a week/month etc, in our experience we have consistently found that full-time block courses with exams scheduled afterwards make for a significantly improved likelihood of delegates passing the assessments first time around.

Accessibility and Special Requirements

Unfortunately, as the classroom is located on the first floor and with no lift facility, delegates with certain physical impairments may find it access challenging.

Please inform us if you have any physical or learning impairments at least 6 weeks prior to the start of the course.
