The NEBOSH Construction Certificate is a nationally recognised qualification for both, those with construction management responsibilities, and for those who are required to provide routine, day-to-day advice on health, safety and welfare in construction work
The programme of study broadly mirrors that of the National General Certificate. However,due to the specific nature of the award, the opportunity arises to cover key construction issues in rather more technical detail than would be appropriate for a general health and safety award.
The Construction Certificate therefore contains additional units and requires a slightly longer programme of study than its counterpart. It is thus designed to cover general health and safety issues within a construction context as well as placing emphasis on the specific construction issues that make the industry amongst the most dangerous in which to work.
Who should attend?
The NEBOSH Specialist Certificate in Construction Safety and Health provides a qualification for those with an interest in or have responsibility for health, safety and welfare in construction work.
Please note that this is for Unit NCC1 and NCC2 for NEBOSH and upon successful completion of the course, delegates will not receive a full NEBOSH Construction Certificate.
To achieve the full qualification, you must have successfully completed the NGC1 unit in the last five years.
