NEBOSH Construction Certificate Virtual Course


NEBOSH Gold ProviderACT have been delivering our NEBOSH training courses since 1991 and we are proud to be a NEBOSH Gold Learning Partner.

The NEBOSH Health and Safety Management for Construction is the latest specification for the NEBOSH construction certificate, a leading health and safety qualification in the UK. The new course provides learners with the knowledge they need in order to identify, evaluate, and control a wide range of workplace hazards that are relevant to the construction industry. The course covers the main legal requirements for health and safety in the UK, and has been strongly aligned with the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015.

This course is delivered via an interactive, tutor-led virtual classroom setting that uses video conferencing software. It is taught over a series of study periods that have been spaced out to break this 10-day course into smaller chunks.

If you haven’t used video conferencing software before there’s no need to worry, over 91% of our students who have attended a virtual classroom course with us recently said they found the software easy to use.

The online sessions are led by one of our experienced tutors and taught in the same way as our classroom courses. The course includes discussions, questions and answers, opportunities to work through problems with your peers, and exercises that can be submitted to your tutor to mark and provide feedback.

Exam Tutorial sessions can be purchased (£159.00 + VAT) as an optional extra for those that would like additional support before sitting their exam.


The Construction Skills Certification Scheme has formally recognised the NEBOSH Health & Safety Management for Construction (UK) qualification as suitable for it’s Academically Qualified Person (AQP) card.
