What does Gold Learning Partner mean?

RRC are delighted to have been evaluated as a NEBOSH Gold Learning Partner, the highest level in the NEBOSH Learning Partner programme.

NEBOSH introduced a Learning Partner Programme in September 2019 which recognises those Learning Partners that provide learners with the best possible learning experience.  

All NEBOSH Learning Partners have been classified based on their performance against the programme’s principles which represent global best practice in the provision of course tuition and support. The key principles are:

  • Ensure all learners understand what is expected of them and what they can expect from their Learning Provider
  • Create a learning environment that is engaging and encourages interaction that is appropriate for the course and type of delivery
  • Provide accurate course materials and continually update and improve them
  • Ensure tutors are qualified, knowledgeable, competent and engaging
  • Give learners feedback on their progress and provide appropriate support
  • Review course delivery and learner feedback and action as necessary

Learner Partner Status

Learning Partners can be identified as follows:

  • Gold - greatly exceeds the principles
  • Silver - exceeds the principles
  • Bronze - meets the principles

Can I pay the course fees in instalments?

Course fees can be paid in up to a maximum of four monthly instalments. For UK customers instalments can be paid over 10 months. Click here for more information.

How long does the Certificate take to complete?

This will depend on how you choose to study.

  • Classroom and Live Online courses are taught over 2 weeks (10 days) plus the assessment which takes around 8 hours to complete.
  • The Online course takes around 108 hours to complete plus the 8 hours for the assessment. We would expect learners to complete this course in around 4-8 months, depending on the time they allocate each week to their studies.

What is the difference between Online, Live Online, e-Learning and Distance Learning?

Live Online is delivered in real time through Zoom and is very similar to a classroom course. The tutor will deliver the course with breaks to allow time for group work, exercises and private study.

Online & e-Learning are just different words for the same thing and mean a flexible self study course delivery with tutor support you can access via email. Distance Learning means learning at a distance but is commonly used to describe the more traditional paper based study. RRC do provide the complete study text which you can download and study off line thus giving you the option of how you study the course.

What is the difference between the UK and International Construction Certificate?

The UK Certificate is based on UK legislation. The International Certificate is based on International Standards of Best Practice.

What educational level is the NEBOSH Construction Certificate?

The NEBOSH Health and Safety Management for Construction (UK) is a level 3 qualification (EQF) which is the equivalent to A-levels in the UK.

Is the Certificate I receive the same if I study Online as when I study in the classroom?

Yes, the Certificate is the exact same. You cannot tell the method of study from the Certificate.

What happens if I fail the exams?

If you do not pass your assessments, you can book a resit with our exams team.

Can I buy past exam papers?

As Unit NC1 is a scenario based question paper, previous exam papers will not help you in your studies. NEBOSH do provide extensive guidance and examples on their website https://www.nebosh.org.uk/open-book-examinations/ which is very helpful in preparing for the assessments.
