CSCS is the Construction Skills Certification Scheme and is a Construction Qualification Card Scheme that aims to provide workers with an ID that they can use to show their competence on construction sites.
A CSCS card is physical proof that a candidate has a level of competence indicated by the type of card that the candidate has.
CSCS cards are not a legal requirement, but a majority of construction sites in the UK require workers to show their competence with a CSCS cards.
A CSCS Test, also known as the CITB Health, Safety & Environment Test is a requirement for all CSCS cards. The type of CSCS test depends on the level of the card.
The type of CSCS card each candidate needs is different based on the Job role and the qualifications they have.
