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 Stirling.
What to Expect in the Test
When you arrive, the on-site staff will check your ID, confirm that you have arranged to take the exam at that time, and then take a photo as per safety regulations. The test itself takes 45 minutes to complete and includes 50 multiple-choice questions. Upon completion, you will receive a certificate of achievement that shows your score.
If you fail, you can always re-register to take the next exam three days after the first exam. You are strongly advised to purchase revision material to help you prepare for retaking the test.
You can find revision material by clicking
