CSCS Test Centre

Book your CSCS test at North Hertfordshire College’s Construction Hub Campus in Stevenage

CSCS is the leading skills certification scheme within the UK construction industry.

CSCS cards provide proof that individuals working on construction sites have the appropriate training and qualifications to be on-site. The card plays its part in improving safety and standards on UK construction sites by ensuring the workforce is appropriately qualified.

Holding a CSCS card is not a legislative requirement. It is entirely up to the principal contractor or client whether workers are required to hold a card before they are allowed on site. However, most principal contractors and major housebuilders need construction workers on their sites to hold a valid card.

To be able to apply for a CSCS card, you are required to pass the appropriate level of CITB Health, Safety, and Environment (HS&E) test within the last two years.

The CITB Health, Safety & Environment test is an important way for construction workers to show they can work safely. For employers, having workers who have passed the CITB HS&E test is an assurance that their workforce can keep themselves and those around them safe.

CSCS test and course options

As well as offering the CSCS test, North Hertfordshire College also provides revision sessions and courses that you can complete before taking your test.
