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 Sheffield.
What to Expect in the Test
Upon arrival to take the CSCS test, simply show your ID to the staff and have your photo taken (for security purposes). When testing begins, you will have 45 minutes to answer 50 multiple-choice questions. You will receive your results certificate once you complete the exam.
