The CSCS card is a way to verify that people working on construction sites have the appropriate knowledge and training. This helps prevent on-the-job mishaps that endanger everyone's health and safety. You obtain a CSCS card by taking the CITB Health, Safety & Environment Test. There are 150 CITB test centres nationwide including in Dundee.
What to Expect in the Test
When you arrive on test day, the staff will ask to check your ID and verify that you are scheduled to test at that time. You will then need to sit for a quick photo for security purposes. Once testing starts, you will have 45 minutes to complete 50 multiple-choice questions. When finished, you will get your results certification.
What to TakeWith You
The most important thing you can take with you to your CITB test is a valid ID. If you don’t have one, you can’t take your test. The most common forms of valid ID are a UK driving license or a passport.
If you don’t have either, you will need to bring two alternative forms of ID with you on test day. These include your British Armed Forces card, EU Country ID card, a Trade Union card, a recent bank statement, debit or credit card, or a National Insurance card.
