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 Salisbury.
What to Expect in the Test
When you arrive, simply show your ID to the staff. They will then take your photo (for security purposes) and confirm your test time. After the start of the exam, you have 45 minutes to answer 50 multiple-choice questions. You will receive a certificate with your results upon completion.
