How to obtain a Manager CSCS Card

There are at least two qualifications you must obtain for a CSCS Black Card. Firstly, you must possess one of the accepted core qualifications for the card. This may be an NVQ Level 5 or above, which could be completed in college or university. In addition to this, you’ll need to complete the required CITB Managers and Professionals Health, Safety and Environment Test. This must be completed at a CITB-approved test centre, and the results will be valid for 2 years.
