CSCS cards provide proof that those working on construction sites have the appropriate training and qualifications for the job they do on site. By gaining your CSCS card, you can demonstrate you are qualified to play your part in improving standards and safety on UK construction sites.

Although CSCS cards are not a legal requirement, most contractors and clients will only allow workers that hold a card on site. Having this card will open up more opportunities and further your career progression.

To apply for an CSCS card, learners must have completed an Level 2 NVQ or SVQ qualification or related apprenticeship. As this course is a Level 2 NVQ qualification, learners will be able to apply for their CSCS card once they have successfully completed the course.
