The NEBOSH National Construction Certificate covers the main legal requirements for construction health and safety in the UK, identification and control of construction workplace hazards, and the practical application of this knowledge. This is reflected in the three units that comprise the qualification. As well as covering a range of construction workplace hazards and methods of control, it includes the legal system in the UK and legislation relating to the management of health and safety at work.

Course materials

ACT has authored and published in conjunction with RMS Publishing study books for use for the NEBOSH Construction Certificate.  They reflect the syllabus requirements, contain many supporting photographs and pictures, a sample practical assessment and sample examination questions.  This reinforces ACT’s standing as a quality provider of the NEBOSH Construction Certificate course. 

Revision and exam tutorials

Tutorials are organised prior to each examination period and made available to all students as an option.  They cover all three of the examined units of the qualification, providing an opportunity to revise and consolidate understanding.  The tutorials greatly assist those that need coaching in examination technique and will increase student confidence to complete the written and practical examinations, leading to a better pass mark.  Tutorials are open to students attending classroom based courses, e-learning and blended learning.



The qualification is divided into three assessed units, each of which is assessed separately.  Assessment is by two written examinations (one for each of the Units NGC1 and NCC1) and a work-based practical examination (Unit NCC2).   All units must be completed within 5 years to achieve the full NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Health and Safety.

Exams take place in March, June, September and December.  Study programmes are designed to lead towards these dates.  Examinations for in-house courses can be arranged with NEBOSH on demand, for a date to suit the learning programme. 

Unit NGC1 is common to the NEBOSH Construction Certificate and the NEBOSH Fire Certificate. 

When taking these awards students do not have to sit NGC1 again if they have passed it within the last five years.

Students are awarded a unit certificate for each unit of assessment successfully achieved and an overall certificate parchment is given to students that pass all examinations.  Students who are unsuccessful in one of the units may re-sit that unit.

The NEBOSH National Construction Certificate also provides a sound basis for further professional study, such as the NEBOSH National Diploma, General Certificate and Fire Certificate.  It also meets the academic requirements for Technician membership (Tech IOSH) of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH – and Associate membership (AIIRSM) of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Managements (IIRSM –

Classroom based taught courses

Classroom courses provide an opportunity to discuss the topics with other students and the tutor and would suit those that enjoy interaction in a classroom environment.  In particular, it has a number of features that may be helpful to those students who have not done formal study and examinations for some time.

The study periods lead up to the separate examination day, allowing time for private study and to attend the optional revision and examination tutorial period.

Classroom based taught courses are available from one of our venues in the UK or they can be organised as an in-house course in your premises if you have a number of students who need this qualification.

E-learning is a great method of learning for those without the time or availability to attend a taught course.  You can start an e-learning course at any time and anywhere in the world.  It is an interesting and enjoyable way to learn and you can gain support from a tutor while working at your own pace. 

The course is available online and involves a minimum of 160 hours of study, which can be done in a flexible way to suit your availability to study during the course.  We will agree a learning plan that will take you to an agreed examination date.

Students can access the revision and examination tutorials before taking their examinations at one of the many examination centres throughout the UK.

Blended learning

Blended learning provides the flexibility of e-learning with the interaction and guidance provided by a classroom based taught course.  This approach would particularly suit those that want to reduce the amount of time away from work attending a classroom course but retain important face-to-face contact with a tutor.

The course involves a one week study period and the remainder of the study time is done online.   This enables you to take a large part of the course in the classroom, which can be either before or after the online element of study has been conducted.

As with e-learning we will agree a learning plan that will complete your study and take you to a prearranged examination date.  Students can also access the revision and examination tutorials before taking their examinations at one of the many examination centres throughout the UK.
