Help, Information, Revision and Mock Tests for the CSCS Card Test

It is never a good idea to take a test without any proper preparation. When it comes to the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) test, the ideal way to go about preparing is to find out what kind of questions you can expect to see on the test. These 50 CITB Practice CSCS questions will give you an idea of what to expect on the CSCS test, as well as provide you an opportunity to answer them to see what areas you may need to brush up on before sitting for the actual test.

To pass your CSCS exam, you will have to answer 50 multiple choice questions and you will need to get at least 47 correct to get your card. So this is a full exam where you can get the complete 50 questions and see how ready you are for your CSCS exam, so write down your answers, and you will be able to check them at the end. Good luck and please comment with your scores at the end of the CSCS Mock Test.

In this practice test, we have picked some questions from the various topics you will be asked if you were looking to get your green CSCS card as a labourer, these include:  General responsibilities, Accident reporting and recording, Health and Welfare, First aid and emergency procedures, Personal protective equipment and Dust and Fumes (Respiratory Hazards)
