Overview

The NEBOSH Construction Certificate is one of the most recognised health and safety qualifications in the construction industry. It is designed primarily for managers, supervisors, and anyone else who is responsible for making sure that construction activities under their control are undertaken safely.

What will I study?

The NEBOSH National Construction Certificate covers the main legal requirements relating to health and safety in UK construction work, identification, control of construction workplace hazards and the practical application of this knowledge. It will follow the NEBOSH course syllabus.

The Construction conversion course is divided into two units, each of which is assessed separately:

Managing and controlling hazards in construction activities (NCC1)
