Climb the Construction Ladder and Save Lives: Astutis Announce Updated NEBOSH Management For Construction Certificate
We, at Astutis, are delighted to announce a new, updated online incarnation of the NEBOSH Health and Safety Management for Construction course.
The course is now on pre-sale and will officially launch on 01 November 2021. Learners can secure the course for the pre-sale price of £520+VAT if purchased before 01 November 2021. (including exam fees).
Most notably, 48 hours of study time have been cut to minimise information overload. In the updated online course, learners will have approximately 116 hours of study, when previously they would have had 164. The reduction in study time does not detract from the quality or standard of the training. If anything, it amplifies it. The delivery of the training will be more concentrated, focusing on what matters. The course remains a level-3 qualification.
In the past, it was expected that learners would have passed the NEBOSH General Certificate, which no longer applies to the new online course. The course does not require any previous experience, making the training more accessible than ever before.
One of the most significant changes is around how the course is assessed. Before learners need to revise for several exams, this course is assessed through one NC1 Open Book Examination (OBE). NEBOSH estimates the assessment should take about 8 hours. Learners will have 48 hours to complete and submit their answers through the NEBOSH online assessment portal.
