Hardware: This is your computer and its functional features, like does it have a web cam and microphone? Do you have multiple screens or just one small laptop display? Is it capable of running the video conferencing software? Does it have the latest updates? It may be time to upgrade as home working and flexibility are probably going to be the watch words of the next few years.

Connectivity to the Internet: If you haven’t got good internet connectivity, you may need to upgrade your package.

8 Days before your exam NEBOSH send a NEBOSH Construction Certificate NC1 delegate login

This is sent directly to the learner from NEBOSH, which is why it's so important that we have the correct details on your registration form, including direct delegate contact details. RISK (nor any other training provider) has any influence over the accessibility or technical connectivity between the delegate and their NEBOSH login.  Which is why it is critical learners log on at the earliest opportunity and familiarise themselves with the NEBOSH Open Book Exam platform. We strongly recommend learners log in, change their password and familiarise themselves with the platform well before the day of the examination.


Your NEBOSH Construction Certificate NC1 Open Book Exam

This exam is the same for everyone in this cohort of delegates, the start time of the exam in the UK is 11.00am, for non UK delegates it's the comparable time in their country (i.e. the same 48 hours for all exam takers). All delegates have a 48 hour window to complete and submit their examination paper. Having a 48 hour window, gives you plenty of flexibility in fitting it in around other commitments i.e. work etc.

The Open Book Examination (OBE) will be based on a realistic scenario, that will test both what you know and what you can do. You will be asked to carry out a series of tasks using evidence from the scenario and the underpinning knowledge gained through your studies and revision. You will have 48 hours to download, complete and submit your assessment.

Your assessment will be marked by an external examiner appointed by NEBOSH. These examiners are chosen for their experience and expertise to ensure that learners are assessed by the very best from our industry.


RISK get access to your submitted exam papers 3 days later

RISK access and download delegate exam submissions in preparation for closing interviews. All other delegates will have interviews scheduled over the next 10 days.

At this point the exam hasn't been marked by NEBOSH, the purpose of this interview is to assess the work has been completed by the delegate. The aim of this interview is to ensure that the work was completed by the delegate themselves and exam scripts have not been plagiarised.
A copy of the Closing Interview Guide will be provided to each of the delegates at the end of the NC1 taught course 


RISK conduct closing interviews

NEBOSH has a strict and rigorous approach to malpractice, plagiarism and collusion. This ensures fairness for all our learners and provides reassurance for the organisations who employ our qualification holders. You must not collude or share answers with other learners and all the work you submit must be solely your own.

Although the closing interviews are not assessed NEBOSH will not publish your results if you do not attend. The closing interview is a key part of their malpractice approach and includes multiple steps:

RISK are provided with a list of interview questions which are bespoke to the examination paper and designed to check you have the underpinning knowledge and understanding behind your answers. Learning Partners ask the questions in a random sequence so not every learner will be asked the same combination of questions; this prevents learners from predicting the interview questions or coaching others. RISK then complete a Closing Interview Record Sheet for every learner.

NEBOSH specifies that the interviewer must have a NEBOSH General Certificate (or equivalent) or at least three years’ experience in the health and safety industry. Before the interview they will read your examination paper so they can ask more detailed questions if required.

During the interview you will be required to: 

Show your identification to check you are who you say you are. This is the same as an invigilated examination.

Show the room you are in to make sure you are alone.

Answer questions about your examination. If you have not written the answers yourself it will be difficult to answer the questions.

To make sure the closing interviews are carried out correctly NEBOSH silently observes a targeted selection of interviews AND scrutinises Closing Interview Record Sheets. If your RISK interviewer or NEBOSH suspects malpractice at any time we will investigate further.
