Changes to CSCS cards

From July 2014, construction workers who wish to renew or apply for a CSCS card will need to prove they have the required training and qualifications. The green Construction Site Operative (CSO) card is no longer available and has been replaced by a new green CSCS card for people working in labouring occupations only. If you need to update your qualifications to obtain a card please call our Skills Advisers. Alternatively for details of the types of card available visit www.cscs.uk.com.

All assessments take place on-site meaning that the NVQ can be obtained with little or no disruption to the working day.
