The NEBOSH Construction Certificate is divided into three units, each of which is assessed separately. The first is Unit NGC1 from the NEBOSH National General Certificate, and it is vital that delegates first complete this before moving on to Units CC1 and CC2, outlined below.

This unit is specific to the NEBOSH Construction Certificate. It is taught over three days and covers the following 12 topics:
- Construction law and management
- Construction site hazards and controls
- Vehicles and plant movement
- Musculoskeletal hazards and controls
- Work equipment
- Electrical safety
- Fire safety
- Chemical and biological health
- Physical and psychological health
- Working at height
- Excavation work and confined spaces

Two-hour written exam consisting of 10 'short-answer' compulsory questions and one 'long-answer' compulsory question. Papers are marked by external examiners appointed by NEBOSH.
