Classroom-based NEBOSH Construction Certificate courses are available to book across the country. Public courses are scheduled every quarter throughout the year. Delegates or companies booking on their behalf can book a course online through our website or over the phone.

In-house Courses

Classroom-based NEBOSH Construction Certificate courses can also be arranged as an in-house course specifically for a company. In-house NEBOSH courses are a popular choice for our bigger clients who have multiple health & safety practitioners to train at once. Having all the delegates attending from one company also promotes company-related discussion about how they can develop their company procedures.

In-house NEBOSH courses can be delivered at a 3B venue or a site of the customers choice. All we ask is that no more than 20 delegates attend a course. Delegates must also sit the designated exams provided by NEBOSH. To enquire, simply fill out the contact form on this page. Please note that all of our quotes on are provided on a case-by-case basis depending on location, delivery type and delegate numbers.

eLearning Courses

The NEBOSH Construction Certificate is also available for learners to complete online via eLearning. eLearning is an alternative option for those who don’t have the time to attend the course in the classroom and would prefer to complete the course in their own time. They simply log in as they please to complete the units.

Upon booking the NEBOSH Construction Certificate eLearning, 3B Training will send the learner their login details to the eLearning portal. The learner must then complete the training before the licence expires.
