Getting your CSCS card

CSCS cards provide proof that individuals working on construction sites have the required qualifications and training for the job they do on site.

By ensuring construction workers are appropriately qualified the card plays its part in improving standards and safety on UK construction sites.

Cards are only issued to those who have achieved (or are in the process of achieving) a nationally recognised construction related qualification, in most cases this will be an NVQ.
