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 CSCS Health, Safety & Environment Test. There are 150 CSCS test centres nationwide including in London (Southwark).
What to Expect in the Test
Upon arrival to take the CSCS exam, the staff first needs to verify your identity and confirm that you have scheduled to take the exam.
For security reasons, you will be photographed. After the exam starts, you will have 45 minutes to complete it. After you have answered all 50 multiple-choice questions, you will receive a results certificate.
If you fail the exam, you can register for the next exam three days after the first exam. We also recommend that you purchase revision material to help you prepare for taking the test again.
You can find revision material by following this link
