CSCS Card Requirements
Make sure you know what qualifications and certifications you need to get (or renew) your CSCS Card!
Which CSCS Card do you have ?
- Green Labourer Card
- Blue Skilled Card
- Gold Skilled Card
- Gold Supervisors Card
- Black Managers Card
What type of CSCS Card do I need?
You can easily find out by going to the CSCS card finder on their website (find it here!). Simply enter your job role or qualifications to get started and it’ll do the rest.
Do I need to pass a test?
For the majority of these there is a test or test equivalent. The most common of these being the CITB Health and Safety test.
In order to get the labourer (green) and skilled (blue) cards the Operatives test is required, for the supervisor (gold) card this is the Supervisor test and managers cards (black) require the Managers and Professionals test.
You need to pass the relevant test within the last 2 years to apply for the card!
What do I need to know for the HS&E tests?
In order to do the best revision, read over any materials you have been given and do mock exams. The best method we recommend for doing this is to download the CITB HS&E app that is most relevant to the CSCS card you’re aiming for.
This post on our blog goes into more detail about the apps and includes links to the Google Play and Apple stores to download them!
When you arrive for your Health & Safety test with us you’ll need to provide valid ID & sign in. Then, once you’ve finished we’ll give you your score report. We keep a copy on file here too at the training centre, and then we update your files to show the relevant qualifications have been achieved once you pass.
