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 Eastbourne.
What to Expect in the Test
Test day is simple and straightforward. Upon arrival, simply present your ID to the staff and have your photo taken (for security).
How Long Does It Take?
Once testing begins, you will be given 45 minutes to answer 50 multiple-choice questions. Once completed, you will receive your results certificate.
What to Take With You
You must bring an acceptable form of identification. If you don’t have a valid ID, you won’t be able to take your test (no exceptions). The most commonly accepted forms of ID include your UK driving license or your passport.
I Don't Have A Passport
If you don’t have either, you will need to provide two alternate forms of identification. Acceptable forms include an EU Country ID card, Trade Union card, British Armed Forces card, credit or debit card, National Insurance card, or your most recent bank statement. Click here
