CERTIFICATE IN CONSTRUCTION HEALTH AND SAFETY
Wiltshire, Dorset, Hampshire & Somerset
The NEBOSH National Construction Certificate is aimed at Supervisors, Managers and those with a role under the Construction Design and Management regulations 2015 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.
This course is designed for people who have an involvement in the construction industry and are required to provide health, safety and welfare advice. This course provides a good foundation in safety and risk management which will help to ensure that health and safety suggestions or decisions are properly taken into account.

ASSESSMENT & CERTIFICATION
Assessment is a two-step process:
This accredited NEBOSH qualification is assessed by two exams of 2 hours each, and a workplace-based practical inspection project.
The exams are conducted in the centre where you studied NG1 and/or NCC1.
The practical assignment is completed in the workplace; the practical assignment should take no longer than a day to complete and you will have 10 days from the exam date to return it to us by email.
Those who successfully complete the course and pass the assessments are awarded the official NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Health and Safety.
Certificates are forwarded to the candidate by us approximately 16 weeks after completion of the course although results are usually issued within 12 weeks.
HOW ARE COURSES RUN?

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 General Certificate courses have the following included in the course cost:

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.
