How to Prepare for the CSCS Health, Safety & Environment Test
Once Construction Support Line has booked your CSCS Test, you will receive a confirmation email giving you the date, time and location of your Test. It is advisable to purchase a CSCS Revision Material Booklet or CD ROM from Construction Support Line so you can prepare. If you are Dyslexic, the revision material is also available as a CD ROM.
The Test will never contain questions that cannot be answered by revising from the CSCS Revision Booklet.
