Students are evaluated in three different ways for the two units they study: NGC1, NCC1, and NCC2.

For NGC1 and NCC1, you’ll have a written test lasting two hours for each unit. These tests include ten short-answer questions and one long-answer question.

NCC2 involves a two-hour practical examination done at your workplace. This test checks how well you apply the health and safety knowledge you’ve learned in a construction setting. You should take this practical test within 10 working days of the written exam.

When you pass a unit, you’ll receive a certificate for that unit. Once you pass all three units (NGC1, NCC1, and NCC2), you’ll get your overall qualification certificate.
