The cost of obtaining a CSCS Gold Card can vary, but generally, there are two main costs to consider: the cost of the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test and the cost of the card itself.
The CITB test typically costs around £21. However, this price can fluctuate slightly, so it’s always recommended to check the current price on the CITB website.
The application fee for the CSCS Gold Card is typically around £36. This includes processing your application and delivering your card.
It’s important to note that these costs don’t include any training or courses you may need to undertake to gain the necessary qualifications for the Gold Card, such as an NVQ or SVQ Level 3. The cost of these courses can vary widely depending on the provider and the specific qualification.
So while the direct costs associated with the test and card application are relatively low, you should consider the broader costs of the necessary training and qualifications when budgeting for your CSCS Gold Card.
