CSCS Card Online Application

What is a CSCS card?

CSCS stands for Construction Skills Certification Scheme. The CSCS Card serves as proof of competence in the industry and will provide the contractor with information regarding your Health, Safety & Environment Test results as well as any qualifications you have in your occupation. There are various cards available under CSCS as well as its affiliate schemes, so whatever you do and whatever qualifications you have, there will definitely be a CSCS Card for you.

How can I get a CSCS Card?

If you are applying for the first time, you will need to book and pass the CSCS Health, Safety & Environment Test before you can get a CSCS card. If you have already passed this test you can apply for a CSCS card with our easy to fill out online booking system at the top of this page.

How long is a CSCS card valid for?

Most of the CSCS cards are valid for 5 years. The only exception is the Trainee cards (for people who are in the process of gaining their qualifications). Trainee Cards are temporary and are valid for 1 or 3 years (duration depends on the course the person is taking). If you are having trouble filling out your CSCS Card application form then check our CSCS Card application guide which gives a detailed description of how to fill in your form.

I need a CSCS card

If you are applying for the first time, you will need to book and pass the Health, Safety & Environment Test first. If you have already passed your Health, Safety & Environment Test please click here to apply for a CSCS card. If you already have a CSCS card and would like to renew it call us on 020 3051 1004.

How long will it take to receive a CSCS Card?

The CSCS card is sent to you within 2-3 weeks after we receive your completed application form. Your application is sent via 1st Class Royal Mail Recorded Delivery, so it is with you in 2-3 working days. The application form will arrive with instructions, and it will be partially pre-filled, so it is easier for you to complete the rest. On average it will take up to 3-4 week from the time the CSCS card is ordered until the card is delivered. If you need more information about CSCS affiliate cards then check our Construction Card pages.
