What makes up a Construction Certificate?

The NEBOSH Health and Safety Management for Construction (UK) is a single module qualification NC1 covered over a 9 day course with an Open Book Exam and closing interview.


The NC1 is a 9 day course with an Open Book Exam at a predefined date. Once you've booked your NEBOSH Construction Certificate NC1 course you will be registered to take the exam by RISK. This means it's important we have the correct details on your registration form, including direct delegate contact details if being booked by a third party. This also helps us to minimise any technology issues prior to the course start date.

Only by passing the NC1 module and successfully completing the closing interview will you have the NEBOSH Health and Safety Management for Construction UK qualification.

Why sit the NEBOSH Construction Certificate online as a 9 day block?

The NEBOSH Construction Certificate Online is a tough 9 day course covering two focused learning goals; the basics of UK H&S Law and Management Systems and; Identifying & Controlling Hazards.

RISK get access to your submitted Construction Certificate exam papers 3 days later

RISK access and download delegate exam submissions in preparation for closing interviews. All other delegates will have interviews scheduled over the next 10 days.

At this point the exam hasn't been marked by NEBOSH, the purpose of this interview is to assess the work has been completed by the delegate. The aim of this interview is to ensure that the work was completed by the delegate themselves and exam scripts have not been plagiarised.


RISK conduct closing interviews

NEBOSH has a strict and rigorous approach to malpractice, plagiarism and collusion. This ensures fairness for all our learners and provides reassurance for the organisations who employ our qualification holders. You must not collude or share answers with other learners and all the work you submit must be solely your own.

Although the closing interviews are not assessed NEBOSH will not publish your results if you do not attend. The closing interview is a key part of their malpractice approach and includes multiple steps:

RISK are provided with a list of interview questions which are bespoke to the examination paper and designed to check you have the underpinning knowledge and understanding behind your answers. Learning Partners ask the questions in a random sequence so not every learner will be asked the same combination of questions; this prevents learners from predicting the interview questions or coaching others. RISK then complete a Closing Interview Record Sheet for every learner.

NEBOSH specifies that the interviewer must have a NEBOSH General Certificate (or equivalent) or at least three years’ experience in the health and safety industry. Before the interview they will read your examination paper so they can ask more detailed questions if required.

During the interview you will be required to:

Show your identification to check you are who you say you are. This is the same as an invigilated examination.

Show the room you are in to make sure you are alone.

Answer questions about your examination. If you have not written the answers yourself it will be difficult to answer the questions.
To make sure the closing interviews are carried out correctly NEBOSH silently observes a targeted selection of interviews AND scrutinises Closing Interview Record Sheets. If your RISK interviewer or NEBOSH suspects malpractice at any time we will investigate further.
