Completing the Practical Assessment

The NCC2 practical application submission must be registered with NEBOSH and the inspection and report must be completed and submitted within seven days of the examination.
You are usually required to complete the practical assessment on site at your place of work.

Once you have completed each study section, you will be ready for your Nebosh Construction exam. Just bear in mind that you must register at least 10 weeks before the examination date.

For the NEBOSH Construction course there are two exams, the first of which can be done remotely.

  • NGC1 Exam - Open Book Exam accessed online at home or other place of your choice
  • NCC1 Exam - Two hour written exam held at Cambridge Safety

If you’ve already passed the Nebosh General Certificate or Health and Safety Diploma within the last five years you will not need to complete the NGC1 exam - you will only have to do the NCC1 and NCC2.

A full list of exam and registration dates will be provided once you have booked on a course. If you have a specific date in mind, you can contact us to confirm when you will need to be registered.
