More information:

What is a CSCS card and do I need it?

CSCS cards are part of the UK’s ‘Construction Skills Certification Scheme’ for site workers to demonstrate they have sufficient knowledge of UK health & safety policies. CSCS cards are not a legal requirement, but most major contractors require workers on their sites to hold them. The law states that anyone undertaking construction work must be competent, and the certification scheme is one of the main ways of demonstrating relevant skills and training.

I have already completed Health & Safety training in my own country - do i need to train again for the UK?

Yes. The CSCS scheme requires that workers must have passed training relating to the UK’s Health & Safety policies. Workers from outside of the UK must also pass the same UK training. It is not sufficient to have only completed Health & Safety training relating to another country’s regulations.

How do I get the CSCS card?

In order to obtain the Green Labourer CSCS Card there are 3 Steps for workers from the UK and overseas:

  1. Workers must first complete and pass a nominated Level 1 UK Health & Safety course. This must be recognised by CSCS. Global FDI’s 1 day class-room based ‘IOSH Working Safely’ course is the industry standard.
  2. Sit and pass the CITB Health Safety and Environment test. This is a 45 minute multiple choice exam taken in a test centre in the UK.
  3. Apply for the CSCS card once exam results are confirmed and you have received your Level 1 Certificate.

How long does it take to get the CSCS card and do I need to come to the UK?

You will need to leave a minimum of 4 – 6 weeks between booking your first training and starting work on site.

  • IOSH working safely course – 1 day classroom based course. We have course here in the UK at a centre near London Gatwick Airport or we can train your workforce at your company premises so there is no need to send your workforce to the UK early. Assessment results provided the same day.
  • CITB exam – 1 morning or afternoon. This must be taken at an approved test centre in the UK. Global FDI will book this at the most convenient time and location for you. The exam is available with a voice-over translation in Spanish and German.
  • Application and issue of the CSCS card. Global FDI will apply for your CSCS cards after confirmation of the CITB exam results. It takes 14 working days from application to issue.

Can I do the exams and training in my own language?
