I'm doing NGC which also does the NGC1 (the same as the NCC)

Have you started yet? How are you getting on if you have? :D

afternoon NGC,
I am finding revision a lot easier this time around, I remember when I studied my NGC and was not working in full time H&S it was difficult to get my head around the syllabus. however this time with both courses (FC & CC ) I do find it very useful to be able to draw on past experiences and previous ACOPs which I have read within my job role and apply that into my study.
also I think having a genuine interest in the H&S sector does help.( study does not feel like a chore)
kind regards

Hi guys, good to see others in the same boat!

I have the NGC so luckily dont need to sit the first paper but I'm going for the NCC1 in June. (E-learning)

Arkwardly, im on holiday exam day so I'm battling to find an exam venue or anything in North Wales and save myself an 380 mile round trip!

I work in Construction as a site manager so practically have an ok understanding, just got to get to grips with Neboshese again :lol: it can catch out the best if you dont read the question

afternoon rob, I am sitting in September I think, ( did fire on the 1st June) a couple of questions,
how did you find the paper, what were the question like, who much study did you put into it. the revision guide I have states 97hours,just wondering if that is the norm or did you have a difference timescale.
kind regards

Hi Gav,

I found it 'ok' didnt turn the paper over and feel immediate dread! There was one on my weakest area regarding different types of radiation grrrrr. But the remainder were reasonable i thought. There wasn't much in the way of cdm related questions which i was really banking on. Confined space and rescue plans, ladder safety, working near powerlines, keeping drivers safe etc etc. Obviously these will change for September :? Im wondering if i should get booked in for sept incase i fail
Study wise, i did mine self study and can't recall the hours I've put in. I really wouldn't worry about target hours.
I have some useful study materials if you want to pm me if you atr interested.
