Benefits of a NEBOSH Construction Course
The first key benefit of completing a NEBOSH construction course
, is that it is specifically focused on health and safety within the field of construction. As construction can be such a dangerous industry, with very particular hazards, this is a major benefit over other more generalised health and safety courses.
In addition the NEBOSH construction course
is available as either a national or international course. Delegates choosing the national option, will received specialised training on UK relevant legislation and policy, while delegates completing the international NEBOSH construction course
, will focus on the general principles of health and safety in construction.
Another benefit of the NEBOSH construction course
, is that it is within an overarching structure of NEBOSH qualifications. The NEBOSH construction course
is a mid level qualification, with the NEBOSH awards and diploma being directly below and above respectively.
In addition, the NEBOSH construction course shares a NGC1 Modules, with other mid level courses such as the NEBOSH general certificate and the NEBOSH fire certificate. This means that delegates that have completed this module in the construction course, can complete the fire or general courses as conversions (omitting the NG1 module). This, of course will save delegates time and money, whilst allowing them to continue to build expertise in the field of heath and safety.
Candidates suggest that one of the most important features of a NEBOSH construction course is its modular nature. Divided into three sections, each one with a different focus and assessment, completing the NEBOSH course can be done to your timescale. Many training providers offer individual modules or assessments to suit the candidate. Retakes are also easier as you can just take the module you need, instead of completing the whole course again!
The three different modes that the NEBOSH construction course is available in, means that it is accessible to delegates in different situations and with different working styles.
Firstly, there is the face to face option. This is where delegates would travel to a trainer's venue. The trainer would then deliver the course to them, in a classroom setting. There will be other delegates on the course and many delegates enjoy the interaction, finding helpful to the learning process. In addition they have the instant support of the tutor, which some delegates find reassuring.
Secondly, there is the distance learning option. This is where the delegates are posted out the materials and work through them at a pace appropriate for them. Delegates that choose this mode of learning are supported by tutors and peers accessible by email, telephone and social media. Delegates have the added benefit of being able to choose when they feel ready to take their exam.
Thirdly, NEBOSH construction courses can be offered as dedicated courses if necessary. This is when the trainer comes to your venue to deliver the course to a number of your delegates. This is a particularly good option, If you have a group of delegates that need to complete the course, as substantial savings can be made. Contact your online training provider for a quote.
