The NEBOSH Construction Certificate Assessment

At the end of the NEBOSH Construction Certificate course you need to pass one assessment:

Open Book Examination

You will be given 48 hours to complete a written examination from home. You will be required to answer a set of questions relating to a real-life scenario. External NEBOSH examiners will evaluate your open-book assessment.

Closing Interview

Following the open book exam you will be expected to take part in a short closing interview, which will take approximately 15 minutes. The interview is performed to confirm that the work you have submitted is your own work and that you have not received any assistance in completing your NEBOSH assessment.

Your final 15 minute interview will take place via online video call, which you will need to access via smartphone, tablet or computer.

You will be asked to provide identification in the form of a passport, driving license or national identity card. The interviewer will need to see the room that you are in to ensure you don’t have access to notes during the interview. The interviewer will ask you questions based on your open-book exam, your work and the work you have submitted.

Please also note that your closing interview isn’t an assessment, you won’t receive a mark. If the interviewer is happy that the work is your own, your mark will be published in line with NEBOSH timeframes.

Follow-on Course

If you would like to study further once you’ve completed the NEBOSH Construction Certificate, many students progress to the NEBOSH Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety (Grad IOSH) and, from there, to chartered status (CMIOSH).
