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 Oldham.
What to Expect in the Test
The test day is simple and straightforward. Upon arrival, just show your ID to the staff and take a photo (for safety purposes). After the exam begins, you have 45 minutes to answer 50 multiple-choice questions. You will receive a certificate of your results.
