Get your CSCS Green Card in three very simple steps:

STEP 1: Attend a short construction Health & Safety course

No matter what level of experience you have, or how many qualifications you have gained, if you wish to apply for or renew a CSCS green card firstly you must complete a Level 1 CITB Health & Safety Awareness.

The test is used to examine the delegate across a range of topics. It is designed to increase production and safety on site. The test is usually available as a computer-based touch screen test, but alternative options are available for certain exemptions.

Once you have passed this test and gained the relevant construction related qualification; you can, therefore, go ahead and apply for your card.
