The process of applying for a CSCS Card can look a little daunting at first. There are 11 different types of card that can be applied for and a variety of different CSCS Tests that have to be passed in order to qualify for each of them.
The first thing to do, then, is to work out which type of CSCS Smart Card (they’re all smart cards now, fitted with an electronic chip that allows your site supervisor to call up your qualifications and experience levels) you need in order to do your job.
You can get help with this by contacting us directly. Construction Support Line’s agents will be able to direct you to the right kind of card.
Booking the CSCS Health, Safety & Environment Test
To book a CSCS Test for a site worker or group of employees, you will need a credit or debit card, plus personal details of your employees – their home addresses and National Insurance Numbers.
You can book the health, safety & environment test online, or you can call us and speak directly to an agent. Using Construction Support Line to take care of your test booking means you don’t have to worry about lost applications and incorrectly filled in forms.
Once the CSCS Health, Safety & Environment Test has Finished
After the test, passing candidates’ will be able to apply for a CSCS Card. We at Construction Support Line can help you with this process, and if you have bought both CSCS test and CSCS card assistance with us, you will have your CSCS Card sent to you as soon as possible.
Bear in mind that some CSCS Cards are designed as temporary and are to be replaced as soon as possible. All Red Cards are intended for replacement by a skilled card, usually within three years.
