Importance of Gold CSCS Cards

Why are Gold CSCS Cards important?

Gold CSCS Cards are for highly skilled tradesmen who can easily develop into a supervisory/managerial role on a construction site. The card is a proof of your extensive skill, competence, and experience in your trade.

There are two types of Gold CSCS Cards available:
• CSCS Gold Advanced Craft Card: for highly skilled tradesman
• CSCS Gold Supervisor Card: For supervisors
