CSCS cards

There is a range of CSCS cards to cover most jobs in construction. Your current job, your previous experience and any qualifications you have will determine which type of card you should apply for.

Prior to applying for a CSCS card you will also need to have passed the CITB health, safety and environment test. The type of test you need to pass will depend on the type of card you are applying for.

Here is a list of the routes we offer to gain a CSCS card.

CSCS Green card (Labourer)



CSCS Gold card (Supervisor)



CSCS Black card (Manager)



The full list of cards is on the CSCS website.
