  • CSCS Test and Card

    • What CSCS card do you need?
      About CSCS card & why do you need one
      The Construction Skills Certification Scheme, CSCS, is the UK construction industry’s number one skills certification scheme. Many principal contractors require individuals to carry a CSCS Card in order for them to access and operate within a building construction site environment. It acts as proof that the CSCS Card holder has been officially trained in the health and safety of their respective trade and that they hold industry recognised qualifications.

      There are many benefits to passing a CSCS Test and obtaining your CSCS Card. These include:
      Open up new opportunities
      Some construction companies will be looking to only use contractors with CSCS cards as it proves they have the right health and safety knowledge and are qualified to do the job.

      Your CSCS Card is an Authentic Proof of Construction Qualification
      Your CSCS card not only shows proof of your identity but it also proves that you are a competent individual in your area of expertise based on your CSCS cards colour.
      Accidents and mishaps on construction sites cost firms billions of pounds every year, so individuals need to be able to prove that they have a solid understanding of health and safety. Although it is currently not mandatory for workers to obtain a CSCS card the message from more and more construction firms is very clear: No CSCS card? No access on-site. So, GET YOUR CSCS CARD TODAY!
