The face to face NEBOSH construction
full course covers all three modules (NGC1, NCC1 and NCC2), needed to qualify for the certificate award. The NGC1 module, also known as management of health and safety, covers general health and safety issues relevant to all streams of industry. The second module NCC1, also known as managing and controlling hazards in the construction industry, covers issues and risks to health, that arise in the specialised world of construction. The final module, know as the NCC2 or construction health and safety practical application, is where the knowledge gleaned in the first two modules is applied to a real world situation. Candidates are then assessed on the report they write on this.
The face to face delivery style of the NEBOSH construction
full course suits some learners well. It allows them to interact with the tutor and other candidates during the course and ask questions as needed. It particularly suits learners that require the support of the tutor or learn best in a classroom or group situation.
An additional benefit of the face to face NEBOSH construction
full course is that they often include formally organised revision days before the exam. Allowing delegates to prepare fully before the big day! Also, due to the modular structure, retakes are only necessary on individual modules that are not passed, rather than having to take the entire course again.
Option 2: The face to face NEBOSH construction conversion course.
The face to face NEBOSH construction conversion course is very similar in structure to the full course, except that is omits the NGC1 module. This is because many of the certificate level courses contain this module, so there are a large number of delegates that already hold this unit, meaning they would have to repeat this if they did the full course. Therefore taking the conversion option, delegates can save time, money and effort, while still benefitting from the features of a face to face course.
The final NEBOSH construction option is the distance learning course. You can complete either the full three module course or the two module conversion in this way. When completing the distance learning course candidates will receive a printed paper and CD master copy of the learning materials by post. Candidates are then free to work through the materials at their own pace, using the email, phone and social media support that the trainer providers, as necessary.
Distance learning particularly suits candidates who enjoy working independently, at their own pace. Exam dates are usually flexible, with the training provider asking for around a month’s notice to make any cancellations, bookings or transfers of dates.
The key benefit to the distance course is flexibility. The distance learning option is flexible because you can choose how long it takes you to complete the study side of the course, when to take the exam and when to utilise the support systems on offer.
