What is a CSCS card?

A CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) card is physical proof that you are rightly qualified and have the appropriate training to work safely on-site. Although they are not a legislative requirement, employers across the UK are making CSCS services mandatory for working on a construction site. There are over a dozen type of CSCS cards that reflect the different occupations and qualifications within the construction sector, ranging from trainee to managerial roles.

How long does it take to get a CSCS card?

When you request a CSCS card, they will ask for the following details before your application can be approved:

  • Your complete name
  • Your date of birth
  • Your national insurance number
  • Your home address
  • Your contact number
  • Your email address
  • Your specific trade in construction

Once you have provided all the correct documentation and provided evidence that you have passed your CITB Health, Safety and Environment test, your CSCS card application will be approved. Most CSCS cards arrive within 3-5 days of application approval but can take up to 10 days within rare cases. If you do not receive your CSCS card in 10 days, please contact the provider for further assistance.
