Provisional Red CSCS Card

Provisional Red CSCS Card

This card is a temporary card which lasts for 6 months, is non-renewable and can be gained under the following circumstances:

  • Candidates who are 16+ and are currently doing some supervised work experience.
  • Candidates who are currently in probationary periods in their current employment. This gives employers time to assess if the candidate is right for their job.
  • Candidates who do not currently have a CSCS Card but are working as a labourer.
  • Candidates who have expired CSO Cards and are currently working in the labouring trade. (Note: This is only applicable till 31st Jan 2015.)

In order to obtain the card, candidates must have passed the CITB Health, Safety and Environment test, within the past two years.

Important: It is expected that before the card expires candidates must achieve or be registered for a construction related qualification. They must also then apply for the appropriate CSCS Card for their job.
