The NEBOSH International Construction Certificate has been designed to provide those working outside the UK who are making day-to-day decisions in construction work with the knowledge they need to ensure that the health and safety implications of their decisions are properly taken into account.

The NEBOSH International Construction Certificate covers all of the main principles relating to health and safety in construction work, including how to identify and control common construction hazards. It is suitable for:

  • Managers and supervisors working in the international construction industry.
  • Those who have responsibility for construction workers/contractors outside the UK.

If you intend to work primarily in the UK, another of our NEBOSH Construction Courses, the NEBOSH National Construction Certificate might be more suitable.

You can study the NEBOSH International Construction Certificate by distance/e-learning with unlimited help and support from our expert NEBOSH trainers - a great option for those who need to fit studying around other commitments.

The NEBOSH International Construction Certificate is widely respected by employers worldwide; it meets the requirements for Technician Membership of IOSH and Associate Membership of IIRSM.

IGC1 is the core unit for all of the NEBOSH International Health and Safety Certificates, so to gain a NEBOSH International Certificate you need to study IGC1 along with the relevant specialist unit and practical assessment.

If you have been awarded a NEBOSH International Certificate in the last 5 years and wish to take another, you will be exempt from IGC1 and can simply 'top up' with the specialist unit and practical assessment to achieve the new award.



Units IGC1 and ICC1 of the NEBOSH International Construction Certificate are each assessed by one two-hour written examination. Unit ICC2 is assessed by a two-hour practical assessment carried out in your workplace (or on a construction site).

Exams take place in March, June September and December. We have exam centres in over 80 countries worldwide and we make all the arrangements for you.

All of our courses contain plenty of exam practice to ensure you are fully prepared for the exam. Many of our trainers are also NEBOSH examiners, so they're well placed to provide advice and guidance throughout your course.
