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.

Unit CC1: Managing and Controlling Hazards in Construction Activities

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
  • Demolition and deconstruction


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.

Candidates are invited to attend one of RoSPA's superb health and safety revision courses, which are tailored specifically to help you learn how to pass the NEBOSH exams.

Unit CC2: Construction health and safety practical application

Work based practical assessment carried out in your workplace no later than two weeks after sitting your final NEBOSH exams. It is assessed by the programme organiser and externally moderated by NEBOSH.

Candidates have the option to attend a separate revision course, packed full of NEBOSH exam tips.
