Improve safety on site
To apply for a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card you must demonstrate your occupational competence and, in most cases, you must pass the CITB Health Safety and Environment Test within the previous two years.
The type of test you need to take depends on which card you are applying for.
The aim of the test is to examine knowledge across a wide range of topics to improve safety and productivity on site. It is usually taken as a PC-based touch screen test at either a mobile testing unit or an accredited test centre. Most people applying for a CSCS card must pass the appropriate health and safety test as well as prove their competence in the required way for the card they are applying for. From 2 April 2012 the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test replaced the Health and Safety Test. The new test introduced a host of new updates to help raise construction standards in a changing industry, while retaining traditional health and safety elements.
Learning and Skills Solutions are licensed by Prometric to deliver Health & Safety testing and currently have approved CSCS testing sites in London and Colchester.
Once the Health & Safety Test has been successfully passed we also provide all of the administration involved in issuing the CSCS card to the learner.
