So how do I go about Booking my CSCS  Card Test?

If you are ready to take your CSCS exam at this test centre, you can either sign in online by clicking here or book over the phone by calling 0344 994 4488.

What should I take with me to the CSCS exam?

It is of the highest importance that you bring photographic identification with you to the test centre, their rules dictate ” No ID, No Test!

Which forms of ID are accepted

The accepted forms of ID are ones with a photo, So a valid UK photo card driving licence showing a photograph of yourself and your signature.

Also, a passport will be accepted from any nationality with both a photo and signature.

Things you should do before sitting the CSCS test

You must take your time to learn and revise as much as possible before sitting the exam. Take plenty of CSCS mock tests and practice exams before sitting your exam. Plenty of mock exams can be found on YouTube. You can also purchase additional revision tools and materials online from retailers such as Amazon.

The Construction Skills Certification Scheme or CSCS aims to improve the level of competency among workers in the UK. Further, it also works on increasing health and safety awareness among all workers to minimise the risks and fatalities in the sites.

The Health, Safety & Environment Test is one of the significant qualifications when applying under this scheme to ensure the promotion of a safe working environment. Once you pass the test, a CSCS card will be issued, which corresponds to your occupation. This card will serve as proof of competence and all relevant qualifications that allow you access to the site.

How to book HS&E Test

Bookings can be made in three ways –

  • Online, as soon as you have registered your details; or
  • By phone, which you can call every Monday to Friday; or
  • By mail, by sending your application form through post.

Details of your test will be sent via email or post.

In 1995 the CSCS card was meant to take safety measures on the work site and now with its excellent result in the last few years it has now become compulsory to have a CSCS card to work on a construction site. To get your CSCS card you need to be a little familiar with the process of getting it. The first thing that one should know before applying to get the CSCS Card is you need to know the right type of card that suits you the most. The cards would be issued according to the type of job you have experience in or you qualify for. The proper card would depend on the job place that you hold. For example, green cards are made for the normal site operatives because the managers and other skilled workers will have cards of different colours.
There are two options available for applicants from where one can apply for their CSCS card. They are as follows.

Using A third-party

To get the CSCS card the first option is the third-party companies. These third-party companies offer advice as well as support in the process of applying for the CSCS card. They offer their services to anyone working in the field of construction irrespective of whether you are new to the industry or have experience. They have vast experience in this field and are very familiar with the procedure. These third party companies will guide you through the application process including a hand in filling of the application forms for the CSCS card. Making use of third-party companies is an easy option for people who do not have time to sort out the entire procedure on their own. These third parties charge for these services and the cost will vary from company to company as every organisation charges their services differently. Thus, before selecting the third-party company, ensure that you know the overall cost and the scope of services they will offer you.

Call an agent

The second option is to contact an agent. Here you will have to call an agent and provide them with personal information like your name, date of birth, address, National Insurance Number, information regarding your current job experience if any etc. The agent will then help you to analyse you your current position in the construction industry. This will help you figure out what type of CSCS card would best suit your needs. The agent will tell which CSCS Test needs to be scheduled if any additional training is required, if documentation must be submitted with the application form, etc.

Online Application for CSCS Card

There are many internet sites where one can look to fill out online forms for CSCS cards. That form requires a little personal information about you. Also, there are 4 different application forms which need to be filled with the correct information as they are job role specific. You can download an application form here.

Where to take HS&E Test

The HS&E Test you will take must be given by a CITB-approved centre. It can be through –

  • A fixed test centre operated by a delivery provider – When you register online to book the test, you can find a lot of accredited testing centres. At present, there are more than 150 testing centres to choose from, and you can opt for a centre near your place.
  • An independent Internet Test Centre (ITC) – ITCs are operated by colleges, training providers or commercial organisations. When you decide to take the test on ITCs, contact them directly to book the HS&E test.
  • A corporate test event – If there are more than 16 individuals, the organisation can arrange a suitable location for the group when taking the test.

These are the options when taking the test. More importantly, make sure to book only at the accredited test centres.

      The list on this page show you were some test centres are. These are to take your test, the best thing to do is read as much info as you can on this site and take some mock exams to practice. You will not need to take a class.
