CSCS Test with Card and Revision

CSCS Platinum Award

The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) provides proof that individuals working on construction sites have the necessary training and qualifications to carry out their work. We offer the full range of CITB Health, Safety & Environment tests at our purpose built testing centre. This course includes, 1 hours revision with one of our qualified instructors. This course typically lasts for 3 hours, from start to finish. Once the delegate(s) has successfully completed their CSCS Exam we with then apply for their CSCS Card.


How to obtain your CSCS (Green) Labourer’s Card under the new rules (effective from July 1st 2014).

  • An NVQ in a construction related subject
  • A relevant IOSH Health & Safety Qualification
  • A Site Safety Plus Health & Safety Awareness Qualification

OR

  • Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment (This is a lifelong qualification, therefore when your card expires all you need to do is visit a CSCS Test Centre and retake your exam).

If you do not have any of these then the quickest and most cost effective path to getting your CSCS (Green) Labourer’s Card is to take the 1 day Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment. This lasts for life once successfully completed (unlike the Site Safety Plus Health & Safety Awareness Qualification which has to be re-done every time you renew CSCS Card) and can be achieved in 1 day. In fact, it can be achieved in as little as 6 guided learning hours, depending on your experience. Go to our Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment page for more details.


We run the 1 day Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment course once a month – please ring for more details. For those who do not have a CITB Health, safety and Environment Test pass we offer a full package that will cover everything you need to obtain your CSCS Green Labourer’s Card – the cost is £150.00 (+VAT). For those who have a valid CITB Health, safety and Environment Test pass within the last 2 years and only need the Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment to allow them to apply for their CSCS Green Labourer’s Card the cost is £90.00 (+VAT).
