Description and purpose of the training course

SCC (in Dutch: VCA) stands for Safety Health and the Environment (SHE) Checklist Contractors and is intended to help you work more safely and to reduce the number of (fatal) accidents. Employers and clients demand that you have sufficient readily available knowledge with regard to safety, health and environment. In order to acquire this knowledge, you can take the Basic Elements of Safety SCC (B-SCC) training course with Boels.

Boels takes care of the entire training route for you, from the course and exam up to the certificate itself. After completing the SCC training course, you are ready to take the SCC exam. Our experienced and skilled instructors will ensure that you are fully prepared for taking the SCC examination.


During the SCC training, the theory is explained step by step. Afterwards, test exams help you prepare for the SCC exam. If you register well in advance, you will receive the theory book before the course starts. This gives you time to become familiar with the material of the course and examination. After completing the training, the SCC exam will take place on the same day under supervision of an independent third party.
