Course Details

CSCS Cards provide proof that individuals working on construction sites have the appropriate training and qualifications. The Green Labourer Card will enable workers to perform tasks on sites at entry level positions and is valid for five years. To apply for a CSCS card you must complete the appropriate health & safety tests.

Our CSCS course provides tutor-led training and support to prepare you for the tests required to obtain the Green Labourer Card. Once you have passed all the elements we will apply for your card.
