CSCS is the leading certification card scheme for construction in the UK. It is the recognised way for workers to prove their awareness of Health & Safety in the sector. Obtaining a CSCS card requires candidates to pass a “touch screen” test based on their knowledge of Health & Safety.

In addition, since 2014, card applicants are required to have an additional Health & Safety Qualification to apply for their card. CEIS Ayrshire deliver the SQA Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment or Highfield Level 1 Award in Health and Safety within a Construction Environment (RQF) as part of this course. The course is generally delivered over 2 days, with testing on both CSCS and the SQA Award occurring on the second day. Candidates will receive training on aspects of Health and Safety, a work book to help prepare for the CSCS test and mock tests for the CSCS test in the lead up to sitting the test. Up to 2 extra days can be available to help candidates who need extra time to prepare for the test(s). COVID-19 – Due to the current pandemic some or all training may take place in an online environment. Testing is likely to take place in-centre but this is dependent on government guidelines. (SQA Qualification is currently suspended so Highfield equivalent will be used until it is reinstated). Successful candidates will receive a pass certificate for the CSCS test, a Health and Safety Certificate (appropriate for the qualification) and the appropriate card.
